Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship (BCCCC)

The Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship (BCCC) at the Carroll School of Management engages 400 member companies and over 10,000 individuals annually to share knowledge and expertise about the practice of corporate citizenship through the Center’s executive education programs, online community, regional programs, and our annual conference. BCCCC has developed signature research and tools that help companies align business strategies with core business values and the broader expectations of society. Some of their research includes:

  • CSR Index.  The BCCCC and Reputation Institute have created a ranking of the top 50 companies in the United States that the public distinguishes for corporate social responsibility.Community Involvement Index.  Since 1995, BCCCC has surveyed community involvement practitioners about their companies’ community involvement, their internal support, programming resources and policies, and critical social issues that draw corporate attention.
  • Competencies.  In 2009, BCCCC conducted a study to assess the competencies needed to lead a successful corporate citizenship or community involvement initiative in the 21st Century.  The resulting models can be used as practical tools for charting a course of personal and professional development for today’s and tomorrow’s leaders to enhance your effectiveness and impact.
  • Profile of the Practice.  This BCCCC report examines how corporate citizenship is being managed behind the scenes in today’s companies.
  • State of Corporate Citizenship.  This biennial survey conducted measures the attitudes and commitments of business executives toward corporate citizenship.
  • Value of Social Reporting. This overview report and seven case studies focus not on the social reports themselves, but rather on the process and outcomes of reporting: how companies prepare the reports, the effects of reporting on management practices, the changes companies expect to make in the future, and the lessons they have learned along the way.
