Discipline: Business, Governance



Holy Name University (HNU) just like any other academic institution is largely dependent on community trust, employees’ loyalty and collaborative efforts in order to attain its goals and objectives. However in the past few years, the administration noticed that there were lapses in addressing societal concerns and collaborative efforts among HNU’s various stakeholders which in a way affected the operations of the school. It is within this context that this study was made. The primary aim of the study was to assess HNU’s practices in terms of corporate citizenship and governance in order to design schemes to enhance its implementation and ensure its continued success. The study used the descriptive survey method. The findings showed that except for promoting environmental sustainability, all the components of corporate citizenship and governance were manifested and adhered to a great extent. In the light of these findings, the proponent concluded that while HNU upheld and integrated CSR and governance in its operations, there were certain aspects of the processes that needed to be enhanced to fulfill its obligations expected of it by its various stakeholders.
