Who We Are
In addition to creating contract opportunities with minority- and women-owned businesses, the Office of Business Diversity also provides free workshops to our local south side of Chicago business owners. Through a collaborative undertaking with the University Law School Institute for Justice Clinic on Entrepreneurship, our distinguished professors, students, and alumni have facilitated several workshops about issues pertaining to marketing and financing, that typically draw an average of 40 local business owners.
As a result of our business diversity efforts, the University of Chicago is building partnerships with minority- and women-owned business and setting the standard for urban universities everywhere.
