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

The University has contracted with the Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC) to issue licenses on its behalf. If a company wants to be contracted with the CLC, their on-going commitment to Corporate Responsibility throughout its supply chain will be considered by many institutions as an essential part of the approval and renewal process. This includes the company’s ability to meet the requirements, and/or comply with the investigations of the Fair Labor Association (www.fairlabor.org) and/or the Worker’s Rights Consortium (www.workersrights.com) where required by institutions.
