Trademark Licensing Program

The Office also administers the College's program for licensing use of the Dartmouth College trademarks, trade names, symbols, and indicia.  For the policy on Use of Dartmouth College Trade Names and Trademarks please click here.  In connection with this activity, the Office processes licensing applications, agreements, and royalty payments, maintains appropriate quality controls, and monitors compliance with trademark licenses.

Dartmouth College is a member of two organizations dedicated to combating abusive labor practices and protecting the rights of workers who make insignia merchandise and other products.  These two organizations are the Fair Labor Association ("FLA") and the Worker Rights Consortium ("WRC"). Dartmouth licensees must join the FLA and must comply with the Codes of Conduct of both the FLA and the WRC. 

To assure compliance with these requirements, Dartmouth requires that departments, clubs, student groups and organizations wishing to have merchandise produced use the "Approved Vendors" list. To view the list please click here.

Further information about the use of the College's trademarks or licensing may be obtained by contacting: Office of the General Counsel's Licensing Office at (603) 646-1729 or email trademarks@dartmouth.edu.
