Trademark Licensing

Washington University’s Trademark Licensing Program protects the university’s registered trademarks and goodwill and supports fair treatment of workers across the globe. Our mission is to promote quality and consistency in the representation of the university on all branded commercial and promotional products.

Through this program, we support the procurement and distribution of promotional apparel and other products, including recommending suppliers, soliciting bids, enlisting design assistance, and meeting with partners and retailers on customized projects and needs.

When you support the university’s licensed suppliers, you simultaneously support just and humane working conditions around the world. We are affiliated with two organizations – the Fair Labor Association and the Workers Rights Consortium – that work for lasting solutions to abusive working conditions. Learn more about these groups.
