AU has not just expressed "intention" to participate in the Designated Suppliers Program, which is not a program that is up and running, but the university is in fact sourcing from the only factory that was opened in closed partnership with the Worker Rights Consortium. The university sources apparel from Knights Apparel's Alta Gracia factory, a company and factory committed to providing fair, living wages and workers' rights.
