Metropolitan Community College embraces our responsibility to make higher education accessible to all students and to fulfill our mission of preparing students, serving communities and creating opportunities for all. Our priority to create opportunities also extends to our district-wide purchasing efforts. Our supplier diversity initiatives ensure we include minority and women-owned, local and small businesses in our procurement process.
The nation's small-business sector is responsible for creating most of the country's new jobs. This stimulates economic growth in our community. When this happens, everybody wins.
MCC continues to grow its supplier diversity program. We have increased opportunities for M/WBEs with training and education, mentoring, networking and other innovative development approaches. If you are an MBE, WBE, small or local business that is interested in providing services to MCC, please join our registry of suppliers by following the vendor application process. Please contact the purchasing department with questions at any time.
We look forward to exploring opportunities to do business with these companies as we continue to expand and strengthen our community.
