USC’s Commitment

As a matter of principle, the University of Southern California (USC) does not support actions that denigrate, coerce or exploit workers in any industry.

In recent years, USC’s concerned staff, students and faculty have helped influence the process of licensing vendors by insisting that we consider the greater good – not just the bottom line.

Thanks to this effort, USC is known as a national leader in setting standards and controls to help ensure that workers creating products bearing the USC name experience safe, healthy and fair working conditions.

Further, USC has chosen to go beyond delegating this responsibility strictly to an outside organization, rather we are committed to holding ourselves and our licensees accountable.
