Chevron Center for Corporate Social Responsibility

Working together to GROW our community

The Concept 

The Chevron Center for Corporate Social Responsibility, located at Waynesburg University's Southpointe Center, seeks to build a network of practitioners in the region dedicated to sharing best practices in corporate social responsibility work. Today's corporate social responsibility encompasses more than just sustainability and philanthropy for businesses, it is about creating value for all and impacting communities in meaningful ways.

Exceptional social performance is no longer considered a bonus for companies to value, it has become vital to their success. As a membership organization, valuable resources will be shared with members to build stronger and more valuable corporate social responsibility programs.

Our Launch

Chevron and Waynesburg University launched the Chevron Center for Corporate Social Responsibility at Waynesburg University, a first-of-its-kind center in the region, in October 2018. The center was made possible through a $250,000 commitment from Chevron.

During a press event hosted by the Washington County Chamber of Commerce, representatives from Chevron and Waynesburg University shared their excitement about the partnership and provided an overview of the center’s programming.

“Our partnership with Waynesburg University underscores our belief that the best way to support the region, now and for decades to come, is to work with community partners to achieve shared goals,” said Trip Oliver, manager of policy, government and public affairs for Chevron Appalachia. “We strive to build strong relationships and make investments that support progress and prosperity in the communities where we live and operate. The Chevron Center for Corporate Social Responsibility at Waynesburg University represents another step toward achieving that goal.”
