At Siena, we take student life seriously, and that includes some serious fun. That’s because we know that a lot of important learning happens outside the classroom. We work hard to put services and events in place to ensure that life at Siena reflects, inspires and supports all of our students.
We are dedicated to institutionalizing and increasing awareness regarding fair trade; guaranteeing workers in developing nations a living wage and protection from harsh working conditions. We have aligned our mission with the Franciscan mission of Siena College, and strive to treat all people with the dignity and respect that each person deserves. Through awareness events, resident assistant programs and other activities, we hope to educate the Siena College community about the benefits of fair trade. Through these efforts, Siena Students for Fair Trade hopes to create a more socially just and peaceful world.
