Minority & Community Participation

Temple University is committed to maximizing minority, women, and disabled owned business enterprises (MWDBE) and community participation in construction projects. This is done in partnership with the City of Philadelphia Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO).  Temple has established a community advisory board that includes representatives from labor unions, the neighboring community, contractors, and the city to help guide Temple’s processes and efforts in this area.

In addition, for certain classes of contracts and covered projects, Temple develops and implements an Economic Opportunity Plan (EOP). The EOP memorializes the University’s commitment to make and to cause its contractors to make best and good faith efforts to provide meaningful and representative opportunities for MWDBE’s and to employ an appropriately diverse building trades workforce in connection with the project.
