A brief description of the institution’s WRC or FLA membership, including the year membership was last established or renewed:

Emerson College is a member of the Workers Rights Consortium, and membership was renewed in 2017.

Emerson's sole bookstore is operated by Barnes and Noble. Our bookstore sells books, clothing, footwear and logoed products. Barnes and Noble has been recognized as an industry leader in the effort to eliminate sweatshops used to produce college apparel. They are a member of the Fair Labor Association (FLA) and since 1998, they have required all vendors who supply products to our stores to adopt the FLA’s Code of Conduct, which requires strict adherence to workers’ rights (and no child labor). And all of the brands sold in their bookstores currently meet labor standards set by the Workers Rights Consortium (WCA), an independent labor rights monitoring organization.
