Waynesburg University, Chevron form center that will stress corporate social responsibility

Waynesburg University and Chevron Corp. have teamed up to form the Chevron Center for Corporate Social Responsibility.

The center, which will be based at the Waynesburg University Southpointe Center in Canonsburg, was announced at a news conference held Tuesday with the Washington County Chamber of Commerce.

The center, with an initial donation of $250,000 from Chevron, will seek to build a network of professionals throughout Southwestern Pennsylvania and to share best practices in corporate social responsibility work.

Areas of focus will include best practices, volunteerism, successful programs, networking, educational seminars, and data compilation and analysis. The center also will host lectures, speaker series and roundtable discussions.

Members of the Chevron Center may be corporations, corporate foundations, professional associations and businesses of all sizes. Inaugural members are 84 Lumber, Community Bank, CONSOL Energy, EQT Corp., First Federal of Greene County, Range Resources and Steptoe & Johnson PLLC.

“We are very excited to announce this first-of-its-kind partnership in our region with Chevron and are appreciative of their generous support,” said Douglas G. Lee, president of Waynesburg University. “The relationship that the Chevron Center … will foster between our local businesses and community will be mutually beneficial for all.”

The work of the center will be led by Stacey Brodak, vice president for Institutional Advancement and University Relations at Waynesburg University, and Matthew Stultz, corporate relations and communication specialist at Waynesburg University.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
