FLA Student Committee
Many college and university students want to live in a world where workers’ rights are protected, and workplaces are fair and safe. These students aim to make this a reality through their academic study, campus leadership, and extracurricular activities.
FLA supports college students dedicated to human rights through a student committee that provides opportunities for real-world learning, professional development, and networking with peers, subject matter experts, and FLA staff.
Monthy seminars during the academic year offer students the opportunity to network with peers, learn from subject matter experts, and interact with professionals and academics in the fields of human rights and social responsibility.
Access to resources
Committee members gain access to FLA e-Learning modules, invitations to board and University Caucus meetings, and opportunities to attend other events. Students receive regular emails with resources and timely information.
Students choose to work on projects that allow them to apply learning, showcase leadership, and demonstrate scholarship in human rights and social responsibility and support FLA’s mission.
One example of a group project is the FLA Student Committee Journal. Students write articles on sustainability topics of interest to them.
Committee application process
Undergraduate or graduate students at FLA member colleges and universities in North America are eligible to apply for the FLA Student Committee.
Ideal candidates demonstrate a personal, professional, and/or academic interest in human rights, labor conditions, and social responsibility. Students should be able to commit five to seven hours per month during the academic year.
