We believe that any products bearing the COLBY name or logo
should be manufactured with the same values and commitment to
human and environmental rights that we have at Colby. We attempt
to ensure that our manufacturers are doing this by requesting their corporate Code of Conduct at our Bookstore.
We are also members of associations and buying groups that deal
with the issue. Below are links for organizations working with these issues, and code of conduct statements for some suppliers of collegiate merchandise. For more information, please
feel free to e-mail our Director, Barb Shutt, at
