The University of California, Davis supports humane, safe, equitable, and enforceable labor standards in the manufacture of products bearing the university’s name and other trademarks. In August 1998, UC became one of the few universities across the nation to adopt a Code of Conduct (Code) for its trademark licensees who manufacture clothing and other products bearing the UC name, logos, or other trademarks. In January 2000, UC furthered its commitment to worker rights by issuing a strengthened Code.
