Diversity Business Information

Youngstown State University's goal is to procure approximately 15% of its goods and services from state of Ohio Certified Minority Business Enterprises (MBE), and 5% from certified Encouraging Diversity, Growth and Equity (EDGE) businesses.

Procurement Services guides and supports the University's ongoing commitment to business opportunities with diversity vendors. By promoting diversity business development as a shared responsibility throughout the University, our efforts have opened doors in University departments and resulted in a heightened awareness of diversity suppliers.
