to the Code of Workplace Conduct for Penn Apparel Licensees
Penn Faculty and Staff:
would like to remind you of an important issue that affects
the entire Penn community.
time to time, many Penn schools and centers order articles
of clothing reflecting their name or the Penn name and
brand. When placing these orders, please remember that
all manufacturers that do business with Penn must adhere
to the Code of Workplace Conduct for Penn apparel licensees. Penn
is committed to this Code, which governs fair and humane
conditions in manufacturing facilities. If our business
partners do not adhere to the Code, we will be placed in
the uncomfortable position of advancing a principle that
we do not practice.
know that many of you have long-standing relationships
with particular vendors. If these vendors are not currently
approved as being in compliance with the Code of Conduct,
they can agree to participate in our licensing process.
This process is administered by Penn's Center for Technology
Transfer (CTT). To learn more about this process and how
your partners can participate, please contact Jackie Miraglia
at CTT at (215) 573-4502.
you are seeking vendors, please refer to the list of Penn
preferred vendors, provided by CTT. These vendors
have all been approved and licensed and we are assured
that they produce quality merchandise. You can be
confident that one of these vendors can meet the needs
of your department. You can obtain the complete list of
licensed vendors of apparel and other products from Jackie
Miraglia, or from Sharlene Sones, director of marketing
for Penn Business Services. Sharlene can also provide information
on opportunities at Penn for apparel vendors.
it is extremely important that we do not compromise the
integrity of the Penn name with products that have not
been manufactured in compliance with the Code of Workplace
Conduct and do not meet our standards. For more information
