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 a
copy of their corporate Code of Conduct be on file in our Bookstore.
We are also members of associations and buying groups that deal
with the issue, and for some of the major clothing and apparel
suppliers of collegiate merchandise. For more information, please
feel free to e-mail our Director, Barb Shutt, at
