Comments from Stanford University Athletic Director Ted Leland regarding today's New York Times story on Nike's proposed changes in its overseas labor practices

"As a partner of Nike, we applaud their recent pledge to root out underage workers and require overseas manufacturers of its wares to meet strict U.S. health and safety standards. Our hope is that other corporations will follow Nike's lead on these issues and that Nike, in fact, wiil take further steps to improve conditions for its workers."
