School of International Service
After receiving her Ph.D. from the School of International Service, Dr. Rebecca DeWinter-Schmitt returned as SIS’s post-doctoral scholar in residence for the 2008-9 academic year. Now an assistant professor, her academic research interest in civil society efforts to ensure corporate social responsibility stem from her ongoing consulting work with Amnesty International USA on business and human rights related issues, and her past involvement with American University Solidarity Committee, an affiliate of United Students Against Sweatshops. She currently advises AIUSA on its campaign to secure oversight and accountability for the private military and security industry. At AU, she coordinated student activism that resulted in the passage of a living wage policy and membership in two monitoring organizations – the Fair Labor Association and the Workers Rights Consortium – to ensure that collegiate apparel bearing the university's logo is not produced in sweatshops.
