Abstract: An implementation of the knowledge economy influence on changes in higher education. A significant element of the concept is introducing an effective knowledge management mechanism, which lead to greater competitiveness and innovation of the university in both a Polish and international context. Therefore in the university’s strategic areas of action it is necessary to present not only scientific achievements but also social, ecological and economic factors in the form of social reports, in accordance with the concept of social responsibility and new role of universities as the organizations serving its environment. There are many examples of good practices developed by foreign universities, which interpret the university social responsibility in a different way, depending on their development strategies.

The article states that AGH has developed significant number of good practices in social responsibility, which have not yet been presented in the form of social report.
