University of Connecticut Vendor Code of Conduct
As part of our ongoing efforts to maintain the university’s position as a leader among institutions of higher education committed to the protection and advancement of socially responsible policies, the university cabinet recently approved a Vendor Code of Conduct to support the university’s interest in working with vendors that demonstrate a commitment to these values. The Vendor Code articulates minimal legal standards as well as preferential expectations for vendors we choose to partner with. For example, the university will take into consideration relevant factors in the selection process such as a willingness to pay living wages, respect for international human rights and labor standards and practicing environmental sustainability. This new policy will help ensure UConn remains at the forefront of best practices among our peer and aspirant institutions.
