Making a difference on campuses and around the world
Student Committee of FLA’s University Advisory Council
Students on campuses across the country use their buying power to advocate for workers’ rights, and the University Advisory Council’s Student Committee brings student voices to FLA’s work. Currently, 14 students from 10 universities are working with the UAC and FLA’s University Board members to make a difference by:
- Providing input on labor issues facing workers around the world and other concerns related to corporate responsibility that matter most to students;
- Engaging with peers and others throughout the year to discuss topics such as global efforts to protect workers’ rights and corporate social responsibility trends;
- Gaining insight into the FLA’s work, including sustainable compliance initiatives and factory investigation reports; and
- Electing student committee co-chairs to participate in annual UAC meetings and attend FLA board meetings.
