Mount Mary has recently instituted a new policy that will support and develop relationships with Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprises (MWBEs).

Every employee with delegated responsibility to influence or commit the expenditure of University funds for the purchase of goods and services shall encourage meaningful participation with MWBEs. For any expenditures over $75,000, leaders must identify and obtain quotes from these businesses. For any contracts or ongoing activities involving
amounts less than $75,000, MMU team members are expected to identify and consider qualifying businesses.

The university is currently building a database of businesses and seeks assistance in developing this resource of information. If you have a business to recommend, email Mount Mary
is open to exploring all credible sources of information about MWBEs in the greater Milwaukee area.
