Historically Underutilized Businesses
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is committed to providing the entire contracting community access to capital improvement projects. It is our policy to provide Historically Underutilized Businesses equal access and opportunity to participate fully in all aspects of the University construction program; to prohibit discrimination against businesses on the basis of race, color, national origin, or gender; to promote and encourage full and open competition; and to promote equal access to contracting opportunities among the various contractors and vendors that do business with the University.
The goal of the University in adopting its plan for increased inclusion by Historically Underutilized Businesses is to ensure and promote equal and increased opportunities for all segments of the design and construction community to participate in University construction projects. The University seeks to include those businesses owned by minorities that have been historically underutilized and excluded from the design, prime contractor, and subcontractor markets. The University encourages all those associated with the University construction program to commit to this goal through a good faith effort.
The HUB Resource Center is located in the Giles F. Horney Building, 103 Airport Drive, Chapel Hill, NC.
