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

Our membership with WRC was established in 2001 and FLA membership was established in 1999. We renew our membership with each organization annually.

University of Dayton Retail Operations are committed to sourcing products that are fair labor designated. Our team cares deeply about where our products are made. Students and other consumers advocating for workers across the globe are increasingly concerned with ethical and sustainable production. We work only with companies that are in good standing with the Fair Labor Association (FLA) http://www.fairlabor.org/ and/or Workers’ Rights Consortium (WRC) www.workersrights.org. We also participate in the designated supplier program. We do not work with companies with labor issues (ex: Russell Athletics, Adidas). For our Nike goods, we work with a third party (BCS) who has permission to use Nike trademark on their own fairly sourced goods. We do not order directly from Nike or purchase their factory produced garments.

In addition to our controlled sourcing, the University of Dayton is a Fair Trade Designated University.(https://udayton.edu/news/articles/2016/11/fair_trade_university_event.php)
