Fair Trade University at Albany
The UAlbany Fair Trade Campaign is managed by representatives from UAlbany’s Office of Sustainability, UAlbany Green Scene, UAlbany Auxiliary Services, Sodexo, UAlbany University Senate and Students Stopping Trafficking Of People (SSTOP) on the main Fair Trade Committee. We are the first SUNY college/university to receive this designation. This campaign aligns with our university values of access, integrity, inclusive excellence, and common good. It aligns with our university’s priorities of diversity and inclusion, internationalization, and engagement and service.
