Why become a Fair Trade Campus?
Becoming a Fair Trade Campus will distinguish your educational institution as a leader in social justice. Through educational opportunities and by incorporating fair trade products into purchasing policies, campuses have a unique opportunity to engage students and faculty members in the fair trade movement.
Campuses that have received a Silver (or, in the future, Gold) designation are indicated with a badge in the list and map below. These designation levels were developed in order to recognize a campus’ efforts to deepen their commitment to the fair trade movement and increase the impact for producers in the Global South. To achieve Silver and Gold levels, campuses must meet the all baseline criteria for a Fair Trade Campus, and elevated standards for product availability, visibility and education, and steering committee activity.

Potential Impact: usd
Estimate shows the potential annual Fairtrade Premium that could be generated by getting your campus Fair Trade designated and if everybody chose Fairtrade coffee and tea every day. Add in other Fairtrade products like chocolate, sugar, flowers and fruit and the impact could be so much greater. The Fairtrade Premium is paid to producers for their crops, in addition to the purchase price, and is used to improve their businesses and communities.
The Fair Trade Campus designation is awarded to campuses that meet three key requirements.
- A steering committee composed of active volunteers and administrative members that will meet regularly.
- There must be Fairtrade certified products available at all food service locations under the Campus’ control.
- Events and activities must be organized to increase visibility of the Fairtrade products available and to educate the Campus about the meaning of fair trade.
