A brief description of how the institution meets the criteria:

Penn State has established the Supplier Diversity Program to ensure woman-owned, minority-owned, veteran-owned, and HUB Zone certified businesses have full opportunity to compete for the University's business. The Manager of Supplier Diversity & Environmental Responsible Purchasing acts as a liason between diverse suppliers and all University staff who have procurement responsibilities.

Penn State has a small business checklist where we are required to document our business with small, disadvantage, minority, women-owned and HUB zone businesses.
