More on I-O at Purdue

The United Nations Global Compact


The Purdue I-O Psychology program is proud to have worked with the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) United Nations Committee to become the first I-O program to become a UN Global Compact participant (and to include our materials in SIOP’s Global Compact Application Toolkit). We have pledged to give emphasis in our courses and other program activities to topics and issues relevant to the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact, which center around organizations’ responsibilities relevant to human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption. To learn more about the ways in which we embed socially responsible principles into all aspects of our program, our bi-annual Communications on Engagement can be found here.
