Minority and Women-Owned Business Policy

Hobart and William Smith Colleges recognize the value of diversity in our community and are, therefore, committed to actively developing supplier diversity by supporting Minority Business Enterprises and Women-owned Business Enterprises. The Colleges are committed to providing opportunities to certified Minority and Women-owned vendors for procurement of goods and services. A variety of approaches will be utilized to increase participation such as outreach, partnering with other educational institutions, and invitation to participate in bid and quote requests.
