The Small Business Program shall support the University's mission of community action and public service, enhance the University's ability to compete for federal and state-sponsored programs and research funds, and ensure compliance with federal and state law. Departments are encouraged to purchase from small businesses and businesses owned by members of traditionally underrepresented groups.
