Arizona State University is a long-standing member of the Workers Rights Consortium http://www.workersrights.org/ and the Fair Labor Association http://www.fairlabor.org/. The University monitors thousands of factories that make licensed goods. In addition, the Workers Rights Consortium and the Fair Labor Association audit production facilities and require improved conditions.

Last year the University dropped its fourth largest revenue licensee, Russell, until factory conditions in Honduras were improved.
