Diversity and Sustainability

University Procurement and Logistics diligently works to support Michigan State University's commitment to diversity and sustainability.

Michigan State University’s commitment to inclusion is reflected in our values, our student population, faculty and staff, and those with whom we do business. MSU is dedicated to ensuring we have integrated a diverse supplier base into our strategic sourcing and procurement processes.

More information on MSU’s commitment to building inclusive communities can be found on the MSU Office of Inclusion and Intercultural Initiatives website.


University Procurement and Logistics supports MSU's sustainability goals as identified by Campus Sustainability by providing responsible procurement and supply chain guidelines and practices.

Environmental considerations are a factor when Procurement negotiates strategic contracts. Since these contracts provide the best value to the university, the MSU community is encouraged to visit Spartan Marketplace prior to using other buying methods.

All things being equal—price, quality, shipping, terms and conditions—a sustainable product should be selected for purchase.
