Supplier Diversity Overview

The University of Missouri System’s supplier diversity effort provides a direct way for the institution to generate economic development particularly for minority, women, veteran, service disabled veterans, and disadvantaged owned businesses in Missouri.  The goal is to ensure supplier diversity is part of both the pool of suppliers and part of the supply chain in all areas of the university's sourcing activities in our procurement and design and construction groups.

Minority Classification

A minority or women business is defined as an organization in which 51% of the ownership interest, stock or otherwise, is owned by minority or women group members. The determination of minority or women status depends solely on ownership and operation and is not related to employment of minority persons or women.
