Dec. 09 /CSRwire/ - Chestnut Hill, MA… The Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Center for Corporate Citizenship have begun an unprecedented research project to provide a broader understanding of the role businesses play in their communities.

Over the past year, the media were filled with stories of both the best and worst of business practices--from the instant outpouring of generous corporate support after 9/11 to the Enron and Tyco scandals. Neither shows the whole picture.

The first national survey on the State of Corporate Citizenship is designed to create a scientific baseline that will help businesses, community leaders, policymakers and the public understand the motivations, capabilities, obstacles, and expectations behind corporate citizenship.

Small and medium-sized companies in the U.S. and around the world are invited to complete the survey, which takes approximately 20 minutes.

There are three ways to complete the survey:
- Online at
- Download a pdf at and fax it to 617.552.8499

- Receive a hard copy via mail or fax by calling 202.463.5517 or 617.552.4545.

Deadline for receipt of completed surveys is December 23, 2002.
