USF participates in the FLA Licensee Program (http://www.fairlabor.org/fla_affiliates_c1.html), is a member of United Students Against Sweatshops (http://usas.org, http://www.campusactivism.org/server-new/uploads/Campus_Org_Manual-05.pdf) and other worker rights organizations.
The university is considering participating in the Designated Suppliers Program (http://www.workersrights.org/dsp.asp) and formalizing its association with the Worker Rights Consortium (http://www.workersrights.org). At present, four months of a planned six month long study have been completed on developing a formal purchasing policy that would incorporate some of the directives outline in the Designated Suppliers Program.
