About the Program
In keeping with our commitment to Inclusive Excellence, the University of Delaware believes that building relationships with small, minority-owned, veteran-owned, women-owned, disable-owned and other disadvantaged businesses is essential if we are to provide opportunities to a supplier base that is as diverse as the communities we serve. Participation in the University's Supplier Diversity Program provides access to University procurement opportunities by matching qualified diverse suppliers with the needs of our internal business units. The goal of the program is to foster mutually beneficial relationships that add value to the University while, at the same time, contributing to the development of diverse businesses through workshops and consultations with the University's Procurement Services Department and Small Business Development Center.
