Boston College believes that licensees who manufacture products bearing the name and logos of Boston College should act in a socially responsible manner consistent with the University's religious and educational mission. To this end, Boston College supports and participates in the efforts of those universities that are cooperating to develop and apply codes of conduct that will govern adequate wages and benefits, workers' rights, working conditions, and other aspects of the manufacture of apparel and other licensed products. Boston College is a founding member of the Fair Labor Association, a coalition of universities, manufacturers, consumer organizations, and religious and human rights groups, working to develop effective mechanisms for monitoring manufacturers' compliance with university codes of conduct.
