Xavier University believes that our supplier base should reflect the communities we serve, while demonstrating high value propositions of superior service, pricing, reliability, and alignment with our commitments to social justice, mutually-beneficial community engagement, and good fiscal stewardship. The supplier diversity process seeks to extend to women- and minority-owned business enterprises opportunities to compete for our business.

The Supplier Diversity Council has been established to advocate for, coordinate, track, and report to the administration on Xavier's progress in meeting its Supplier Diversity goals. Commitment from all members of the institution who purchase goods and/or services is required to ensure that diverse suppliers are brought to the attention of the Supplier Diversity Council and given fair consideration in purchasing decisions.
