The Committee on Social Responsibility in Manufacturing is dedicated to helping uphold William and Mary's commitment to purchasing collegiate goods from socially responsible manufacturers and vendors. This commitment with regard to College apparel is detailed in a Licensing Code of Conduct that sets manufacturing standards that protect workers and the environment, sets minimum standards for wages, benefits, health and safety, and protects workers' freedom of association and bans child labor.
Created by the Provost in 2011, the Committee on Social Responsibility in Manufacturing (formerly known as the Licensing Code of Conduct Committee) is dedicated to helping ensure the integrity of this commitment to social responsibility. The Committee helps to oversee the licensing process, and seeks to advise and educate campus about the process and value of purchasing goods from socially responsible manufacturers and vendors. In these capacities, the Committee partners with Auxiliary Services, student groups, faculty and administrators, the Worker Rights Consortium (WRC), and the Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC).
