This thesis describes how student activism changed the way the University handled garments sold in the University's bookstore. Describing her experience implementing the Sweatshop Free Policy on the Regis University campus, the author talks about the many important steps made towards making the University 100% sweatshop free. She describes her excitement in seeing changes that happened at Regis and believes further implementation of the policy is crucial in order for Regis to live up to its ethical standards as they are laid out in the Jesuit tradition. She further advocates the Sweatshop Free Policy should be revised and scrutinized as it continues to grow in the years to come, as alternative options for sweatshop free apparel become more readily available. ________________________________________________________________________
