John Jenkins has created a standing committee to review Notre Dame’s guidelines about creating licensed Notre Dame products, according to an email sent Wednesday to University students, faculty and staff.Jenkins formed the committee in response to a May report by an ad-hoc committee on worker participation, he said in the email.“While recognizing the important steps that have been accomplished so far, the committee determined that the effort to make lasting improvements to workers’ rights in factories around the world is never truly complete,” Jenkins said in the email. “Among its recommendations, the committee called for the creation of a standing committee to monitor the University’s licensing activities and oversee the implementation of various strategic initiatives.”Jenkins said he appointed executive vice president John Affleck-Graves to chair the standing committee, titled the Committee on Trademark Licensing and Human Rights.The committee consists of five faculty members, three undergraduate students, two graduate students, five members of the University administration and two alumni, listed below.Jenkins also encouraged everyone to reach out to committee members with ideas.“As we continue this effort, I invite the campus community to contact John Affleck-Graves or any other members of the committee with any specific issues you would like the committee to discuss,” he said in the email.last_img read more
