Abstract

The present study was initiated to analysis the social responsibility of teachers of higher education. In fact, Globalization advocates harmony in the world as well as assert social responsibility in the context of global citizenship. Globalization interconnected both people and problems and it is inevitable to separate citizenship from chauvinistic nationalism in the milieu of global citizenship which adheres to global citizenship education. Hence academia is required to play their vital role for global citizenship to make this world a worth living planet. Therefore, this study was designed to probe reflection of core essentials of global citizenship with reference to social responsibility. Confirmatory mix method approach was used, and global citizenship scale was adopted to quantify the core essentials of global citizenship. Moreover, a semi structured interview protocol was also developed for triangulation. The perception of 618 teachers at public sector universities were analyzed using descriptive statistics. The findings highlighted that institutions of higher learning reflect medium level of global citizenship. It was recommended to plan special training programs to equip teaching and learning community with knowledge, skills and healthy attitude towards core essentials of global citizenship to follow and propagate.
