Our mission is to provide equal access to procurement opportunities for local, small and minority-owned enterprises (MBEs). In addition, Augusta University encourages majority suppliers to support minority-owned firms through supplier development assistance, subcontracting opportunities, mentoring and/or the purchase of products from MBE sources. We are committed to ensuring that our supplier diversity initiative strengthens the local, small and minority businesses that are critical to the future of our business and the community we serve. We value diversity. It's good for business. It's good for all of us.
