A brief description of the institution’s Fair Trade initiatives, including the year formal designation was achieved and/or renewed:

Saint Michael's College was designated as a Fair Trade Campus in February of 2012 and was the first campus in Vermont to receive this designation.

As a Fair Trade College, Saint Michael's resolved to
1) Work with the college food service contractor to make Fair Trade coffee, tea and bananas available in the dining facilities at all times.
2) Work with the food service contractor to make Fair Trade coffee and tea available for college events.
3) Commit to integrate Fair Trade information and events into the programs and culture of the college, and ensure that the principles of Fair Trade continue to be part of the policy and social fabric of our community.

During the academic year, the student environmental club hosts weekly Fair Trade Coffee (and tea) hours and provides education on what fair trade is.
