Supplier Diversity Program
mission statement/ vision/ values
Boston College's Supplier Diversity Program is designed to enhance our supplier base by promoting opportunities to qualified diverse suppliers and fostering the University mission of welcoming diversity to our students, faculty, staff and community by expanding relationships and enriching economic opportunities.
Our objective is to promote greater minority-owned and women-owned business participation. This program forms a connection between Boston College, the small business and the MWBE (Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprise) community. The inclusion of these businesses in the economic mainstream improves the economic stabililty of our community and improves overall diversity of the University. It provides an additional benefit where vendors may interact with our students, faculty and staff, providing greater opportunities for ideas, interest and overall experience.
By creating effective business relationships, we strengthen economic development and viability for disadvantaged businesses while providing a value-added strategy that increases competition. Through this commitment, we promote the opportunity for qualified MWBE's to receive fair and equal chances to provide goods and services to Boston College.
