About Supplier Diversity

Penn State is committed to strengthening economic development through our Supplier Diversity Program.

By soliciting relationships with diverse businesses, we expect increased competition for materials, supplies, equipment, construction, and services. We hope to expand supplier opportunities with internal utilization guidelines.   

Penn State’s Supplier Diversity Program aligns with the mission, vision, and values of Procurement Services.  

  • We adhere to a comprehensive nondiscrimination policy—and work to develop procedures and initiatives to ensure fair consideration.  
  • We recognize supplier diversity as an important component of the overall business effort and foster relationships with businesses to increase utilization for procurement of goods and services.
