Abstract

The article is devoted to the problems of formation and popularization of social responsibility, which is considered as one of the ways to improve the welfare of society. Social responsibility of universities is seen as an important tool for building partnerships and community development. The paper analyses the domestic scientific publications on the social responsibility of universities and their interaction with the community. The main substantive dimensions of existing research are identified, which include the relationship between social responsibility of universities and their competitiveness, as well as the impact of social responsibility of universities on the quality of higher education. The need to strengthen the applied aspect in the study of social responsibility is emphasized. There is a lack of research aimed directly and comprehensively at the problem of interaction between universities and local communities. The relevance of the study of social responsibility of universities is due to trends in society as a whole (sustainable development) and the process of reforming higher education (competitiveness of institutions, expanding university autonomy and financial autonomy, in particular, strengthening the social mission of higher education). Domestic experts in the study of social responsibility of universities are more focused on theoretical aspects. The applied aspect of research on the implementation of social responsibility of higher education institutions in Ukraine needs to be strengthened. The main content vectors of the study of social responsibility of universities by domestic scientists include: the relationship between social responsibility of universities and their competitiveness; the impact of social responsibility of universities on improving the quality of higher education.
