Access on-demand module

Are you a small business owner interested in doing business with colleges and universities? Wondering how to navigate the procurement process and what it takes to compete for contracts?

We’ve created an online, on-demand module designed to provide owners of diverse small businesses with some of the knowledge and tools necessary to compete for business with colleges and universities.

The module covers 4 topics:

Session 1: What You Need to Know About the Higher Education Market

Session 2: What is Your Value Proposition

Session 3: Certification for Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprises (MWBEs)

Session 4: Identifying Business Opportunities at Colleges and Universities

You don’t need to register to access the content. The module is designed to be easy to navigate, with links to additional resources.

All that we ask is that – after you’ve completed the 4 sessions – please fill out a very brief, confidential survey that will help us improve the content.
