UConn is receiving global attention for its commitment to ethical supply chain management, licensing, and branding as the winner of the 2021 International Collegiate Licensing Association Service Award.
UConn’s commitment starts at the top with its President’s Committee on Corporate Social Responsibility, which the award notes sets the framework for ethical engagement. It extends through the University’s Vendor Code of Conduct, which lays out key terms of business engagement.
In addition, UConn has developed a broad range of programs and opportunities for teaching, research, and public engagement channeled through its Business and Human Rights Initiative (BHRI), a joint endeavor between the Human Rights Institute’s Dodd Impact and the UConn School of Business that extends opportunities for learning and policy dialogue beyond the classroom and into boardrooms and the public arena.
“Part of the ‘way that UConn does business’ is to educate in this manner,” the ICLA Service Award committee noted in selecting the University for the 2021 award.
