Spring 2014

The Brandywine Campus opens it’s doors to welcome back its Students, Staff, and Faculty as a new semester commences. With that being said it is time for us to continue to push the Fair Trade Movement forward on the Brandywine Campus and in the surrounding area. Many people do not know the importance of Fair Trade or the positive impact its has, education is key, so remember to spread the word and be an example to those around you.
