Welcome to Supplier Diversity

Louisiana State University is committed to fostering innovation and entrepreneurship through the use of diverse suppliers. The goal of the diversity initiative is to identify, align, strengthen and connect with Louisiana’s minority (MBE) and women-owned (WBE) business enterprises.  Creating opportunities for small business enterprises that result in a meaningful economic impact for Louisiana State University and the community.


The Supplier Diversity department, under the supervision of Finance & Administration, is responsible for managing the Supplier Diversity Plan which includes implementation, monitoring and reporting. Supplier Diversity will work in conjunction with Procurement Services, Accounting Services, Facilities Development, Facilities Management and the Campus Community to ensure that procurement activities are conducted within the parameters of the plan.
