A brief description of how the institution meets the criteria:

Tufts Minority Business Enterprise Program seeks to promote economic development for minority, women, and economically disadvantaged businesses through quality referral, and providing information to procurement opportunities that improve the economy and the quality of life for minority, women and the economically disadvantaged. Tufts University makes a significant effort to promote diversity throughout the student and employee populations, but understands that efforts to increase the level of minority business enterprise participation in the purchasing process are needed. The minority business community does not expect special considerations, but it does expect equal access. The website includes a list of local minority, women-owned & small business suppliers.
