The idea of social responsibility is now much larger and more comprehensive and includes finding answers to the economic, social, and environmental issues facing society. Moreover, the close connection between higher education and its institutions, universities and society, cannot be achieved in isolation. Universities are essential pillars of society because they are essential in raising awareness of social responsibility among students, faculty, and other staff, especially awareness of tourism development, in a way that encourages them to act as community figures who embrace shared opinions rather than choosing to embrace individual thinking. Therefore, the purpose of the research is to explore the social responsibility practices of Egyptian universities towards the tourism sector، To achieve this purpose, the researcher used a descriptive research design - correlation and contrasts. The quantitative methods presented in the questionnaires were used with university leaders and faculty members.
