Supplier Diversity

Princeton recognizes the importance of supporting a diverse and inclusive campus community; not only in our teaching and research mission but also in the way we do business.  Our Supplier Diversity program allows us to engage with businesses owned by minorities, women, LGBT individuals, and veterans. In doing so, we have the potential to foster competition, create value, and provide innovative solutions to our campus.

Procurement Services in the Office of Finance and Treasury leads this robust program.  Objectives include demonstrating responsible stewardship of financial resources by promoting competitive access to procurement needs for interested firms; engaging and educating diverse firms on the opportunities to support the University’s mission through the provision of needed goods and services; and pursuing economic inclusion for diverse suppliers as measured by the frequency with which they have the opportunity to compete for University business and the total spend directed to them.

Examples of exciting vendors include the following:

The Faculty Computer Program is proud to offer Lenovo kits through SHI, Inc. a minority and woman owned business.

Sir David Adjaye of Adjaye Associates has been selected as design architect for the new Princeton University Art Museum.

Deborah Berke Partners, an award-winning architecture practice has been selected for a new residential college project at Princeton University.
