Two research questions and two corresponding null hypotheses were formulated to guide the study. The design employed for the study was a descriptive survey design while the population of the study consisted of 129 respondents which comprised 29 Community Relations Officers (CRO) and 100 community secondary school principals while the sample for the study was 65 respondents consisting of 15 Community Relations Officers (CROs) and 50 Principals. The sample size for the study was determined using a multi-stage random sampling technique. The instrument used for data collection was a 10 items questionnaire tagged “Corporate Social Responsibilities of Multinational Companies for Students Support Questionnaire” (CSRMCSSQ) which was face and content validated by three experts in Measurement and Evaluation, University of Port Harcourt. The reliability of the instrument was determined using Cronbach Alpha statistics with an average index of 0.89.
