The Business Diversity Initiative at The University of Akron is committed to creating sound business relationships that strengthen the economic development and viability for diverse businesses while providing a value-added strategy that increases competition to ensure the best overall value for University family and the surrounding community.
Why Does UA Value Supplier Diversity?
Our goal is to have the most effective supplier diversity initiative within Higher Education and provide a positive impact on the economic growth and viability of small, disadvantaged, minority, and women-owned businesses.
The continuous goal of our Supplier Diversity Initiative is to promote a healthy social and economic environment for our organization and our small and diverse business partners.
We truly appreciate the benefits that this diversity effort brings to our institution, to the businesses we work with and to the communities we serve. Benefits include but are not limited to:
The Universe Is Diverse.
