Every alternate year, the USRN member institutions take turn to hold the International USR Summit. The Summit serves as an effective platform to connect and foster partnership among world renowned universities to share insights in advancing university social responsibility, generating social impact and driving sustainable development of the world. The past International USR Summits have attracted over 200 presidents, senior administrators, professors and students from 52 institutions in 12 countries.
The next USR Summit will be hosted by the University of Pretoria from 3 to 5 February 2021 at the Future Africa Campus, Pretoria, South Africa.
The 2021 Summit aims to advance the scholarship and practice of University Social Responsibility in higher education by focusing on the broad theme of "University Social Responsibility: Priorities for the Next Decade".
