Historically Underutilized Businesses


HUB Mission

The purpose of UNC Wilmington's Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) Program is to recruit, educate, and interact with minority and women-owned businesses to encourage opportunities to do business with the Office of Facilities. The University has established a set of guidelines to increase HUB participation on its construction projects.  UNCW encourages its staff and contractors to commit to conducting good faith efforts to achieve a goal of 10% minority business participation on projects which include architectural or engineering design services, construction services, other professional services, and the procurement of goods or equipment for projects.
