Getting university administration more involved

Michael Billotti from Fair Trade Fordham University March 11, 2014

We are having difficulty with encouraging our University’s administration to respond to our events and cooperate with us. Any strategies to encourage a university’s staff to participate more with fair trade events or provide what we need?

  1. Often times university administration will have various projects or commissions regarding their school’s goal as a whole. Research how fair trade relates to one of these. Approach administration with this in mind and stress that without incorporating fair trade – the school might not be fulfilling its mission as a whole.

    Additionally, stress how attractive it might look for your university to earn fair trade status. This is a great selling point!
