University Supplier Diversity Program
Our mission is to expand enrollment and participation of small/minority businesses on University contracts, by facilitating the opportunity for said businesses to provide valuable, quality, timely goods and services, while building mutually beneficial, respectful, lasting business relationships with the University community.
In response to the fiscal challenges, Procurement Services and the University community continue to explore cost reduction opportunities, redefine business processes, and re-evaluate the way in which the University procures goods and services while maintaining the quality and integrity of the UConn community. While some efforts may seem small, collectively they make a difference that UCount on.
