Diversity Initiative

It is the policy of Washington University that, in acquiring goods and services, we provide opportunities to a widely diverse group of business enterprises. Washington University is committed through its Supplier Diversity Initiative to assist diverse business enterprises in gaining access to business opportunities at the university.

The commitment is university-wide and coincides with the expectation that all goods and services acquired from any business enterprise will meet the university’s requirements relating to value, quality and timeliness. The university believes that through this initiative, more diverse business enterprises will not only have greater opportunities, but will increase their business presence at the university. This will be of value to the university, to the business enterprises and to the St. Louis community at large.
