Supplier Diversity Results

Since fiscal year 2014, the University has had an active supplier diversity program designed to increase our purchases of goods and services from minority business enterprises (“MBEs”).  The ultimate goal is for our supplier base to more closely reflect our customer, employee and regional population in terms of diversity. For FY19 we purchased 4.75% and for FY18 we purchased 9.70% of goods and services from MBEs.  With the collective University's support, we remain committed to reaching or exceeding our goals at fiscal year end.
