expand/collapse Expand/collapse Collection Overview

Size 1.5 feet of linear shelf space (approximately 500 items)
Abstract In the spring of 1998, professors Richard (Pete) Andrews, Nicholas Didow, and James Peacock taught INTS 092: Economics, Ethics, and Impacts of the Global Economy: The Nike Example. The interdisciplinary seminar was inspired in part by protests at UNC-Chapel Hill following the renewal of UNC's multi-million dollar deal with Nike. In the course, students examined Nike's labor practices. The course attracted national media attention, particularly when Nike Chief Executive Officer Phil Knight visited campus at the end of the semester to attend the class. Records include the syllabus for the class, notes, student papers and presentations (made accessible with permission), materials used in the course, and news clippings.
