“Identify, advocate, link, and cultivate minority and women-owned businesses."
The State of Ohio has asked state agencies, boards and commissions to maintain a 15 percent set-aside purchasing goal for eligible business operations and contracts. Kent State University aspires to achieve 15 percent as well; observing the importance of supporting growth in minority businesses.
Different perspectives, backgrounds and ideas maximize returns. Although each department is a steward of its own funds, we encourage minority participation in bid responses and other good or services purchases throughout the university.
