Guidelines for this assignment

Group Research Project:  This assignment has two parts.  Part One (Trustworthiness-ROCC) is to be completed by midterm and Part Two (Corporate Social Responsibility-CSR) is to be completed at the end of the semester.  These are group assignments and you will be assigned to groups of 3-5.  Each Group will write two papers and prepare two PowerPoint/Ponopto presentations.  For example, the Trustworthiness-ROCC paper and PowerPoint will be due at midterm and the Corporate Social Responsibility-CSR paper and PowerPoint will be due at the end of the semester.  The power point presentation should include a voice recording - the rubric grades the oral presentation on timing and delivery.

The papers must include two pages of text, plus a title page, an executive summary, and a reference page.  You may include tables, figures, and appendices as well.  Format your paper in APA style; the ROCC and CSR templates are already created for you.  Ensure to document your sources in APA style using the "Report your Findings in APA style" tab, located on this LibGuide.  Select your company from the Best Global Brands Rankings list.  Research your company and use the analysis from your paper to prepare a 10-minute group PowerPoint presentation about your company’s efforts to be 1) a Trustworthy Corporate Citizen (midterm), and 2) a Socially Responsible Corporate Citizen (final). 

The research paper/presentation is 20% of the student’s final grade.  Students will have the opportunity to submit their papers for feedback prior to the due date.  More details will be provided in the course room.
