Presenter  Mihaela Pacesila
The social responsibility of the non-governmental sector refers to the coherence between the NGO values and the activities carried out in order to satisfy the society needs. The entities of this sector are considered essential actors in the community while generating changes in the field they operate.
The current article provides information related to the social responsibility of the Romanian student NGOs. Based on a set of 21 student NGOs, the paper illustrates how these organizations fulfill the duty towards their human resources and the society as a whole.
Data collection method used in this paper included the questionnaire based-survey which was considered the most appropriate tool to carry out a research on the topic. The sample is composed of individuals activating in different student NGOs across the country. As regards their education, some of the respondents had completed either the bachelor's (first cycle), either the master's (second cycle) levels while the others were still attending university courses. The sample is quite young, aged between 19 and 30 years, because, generally, this is the average age of those activating in student NGOs. As regards the sampling, it was opted for the type of non-probabilistic sampling which involves conducting the research among the most available subjects.
The findings suggest that student NGOs are intensely involved in representing and promoting the interests of their members and volunteers, as well as of the student community. They are also concerned with societal issues, especially those related to environmental protection. As for the pandemic generated by Covid 19, it changed their way of operating because all their activities and projects continued to be carried out, but especially online.
This analysis helps better understand the student NGO responsibility towards their human resources as well as the society while providing a useful perspective of student organizations development and involvement in Romania.
