Loras College

Loras College was the first college in Iowa, the first Catholic College in the Midwest and the fourth Catholic College in the nation to sign a Fair Trade resolution.

Loras College signed a resolution in May 2012, designating it as a Fair Trade College. It was the last stage of an application process governed by Fair Trade Colleges and Universities, which aims to seek equity in trade and promote sustainable development.
