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!
