Adding Value Through Diversity

St. Petersburg College is committed to increasing business participation and wants to partner with a widely diverse group of business enterprises to share in supporting community activities, education and training. We believe that increasing our effectiveness through direct outreach and advocacy groups dedicated to business development will be of value to the college, to the business enterprises, and to the Pinellas County community at large.

Promoting Strategies of Inclusion

It is the intention of SPC that in acquiring goods and services we maintain an environment that promotes, increases, and improves the quality of the overall participation of a widely diverse group of business enterprises. SPC is committed to assist minority and women-owned business enterprises in gaining access to business opportunities at the college. To further expand business opportunities and enhance continued economic growth, SPC will expect our strategic suppliers to adopt similar strategies of inclusion.

Greater Diversity, Greater Opportunities

It is our objective to implement an innovative program that makes supplier diversity a specific objective collegewide. This objective coincides with the expectation that all goods and services acquired from any business enterprise will meet the college's requirements relating to value, quality, and timeliness. The college believes that, through our supplier diversity initiative, more diverse business enterprises will not only have greater opportunities but will increase their business presence at the college.
