Student Engagement The University of St. Gallen has a longstanding tradition of supporting student involvement in associations and initiatives that promote corporate responsibility and sustainability. Student Associations HSG not only supports student engagement strongly, but it has also been central to campus life for generations. The University is committed to encouraging student activities, for example, by providing space and awarding ECTS credits for specific engagements as well as to providing a supportive environment for student clubs dedicated to the field of R&S. Twelve of the more than 100 student organisations are active in the R&S field. The following associations and initiatives are related to corporate responsibility and sustainability: AIESEC - Arranges internships for HSG students abroad, and domestic internships for students from foreign countries Amnesty International Students St. Gallen - Human rights protection Effective Altruism@HSG - A network of effective altruists Gateway to India - Arranges internships at Indian NGOs IGNITE - Creates insight into and practical projects on purpose-driven business oikos - Aims at including sustainability in economy and management PIECES - Educates children in developing countries pure drops - Provides drinking water treatment in developing countries rise haiti - Focuses on improving the living and learning environment of kindergarten and school children in Haiti sneep St. Gallen - Student network for ethics in economics and practice Social Business Club - Addressing global societal challenges through business Student Impact - Student consultancy with the goal of creating social and ecological benefits for society Campus Credits Extracurricular activities have a very long tradition at the University of St.Gallen. Student engagement is stimulated through special Campus Credits. These credits are awarded to students who make an extraordinary contribution that benefits the University very specifically. One campus credit is the equivalent of 90 working hours. The engagement needed to acquire a campus credit is therefore far more extensive than that required to earn an academic credit, but these credits are an acknowledgement of students’ extracurricular work. Campus credits thus encourage positive student engagement at the HSG.
