Colleges & Universities

Most students take pride in their universities and like to demonstrate school spirit. From t-shirts, sweatpants and hats, to baking accessories, golf equipment and headphones, students and alumni buy many products bearing their school's logo. Even as they enjoy these products, students and alumni also care that college-logoed products are manufactured in a facility that respects its workers and treats them well. FLA university affiliates are committed to ensuring that fair labor standards and human rights are respected wherever their branded merchandise is produced. FLA-affiliated universities require their licensees — any company manufacturing products bearing the school's marks or logo — to commit to the FLA Workplace Code of Conduct. Licensees are required to meet strict standards, and to develop social compliance systems that identify risks to workers and fix problems quickly when they are identified. FLA provides tools for college and university officials to monitor the performance of their licensees. Is your school involved? Find out below.
 
Each college and university affiliated with FLA have a representative on FLA’s University Advisory Council (UAC), which elects representatives to the FLA Board of Directors and advises on policy matters and monitoring activities.
