Minority Contracts

Minority Contracts

The University of South Florida has faced criticism from some in the community for not giving enough business to minority-owned companies. The school is addressing that issue by enhancing its Supplier Diversity program with new leadership, by holding training programs for university employees and through community outreach events. We’ll get an update on these efforts on the next University Beat on WUSF Public Media.
