Seattle University is committed to supporting our local community and businesses. The University is directing more of its purchasing dollars towards small, local, and diverse businesses through our Supplier Diversification Program and encouraging our community of students, faculty, staff, alumni, and visitors to #SpendLikeItMatters through our partnership with Intentionalist. Here is a list of local and diverse businesses near our campus – we hope that you will help us invest in our community businesses with your purchases!



The Resource Amplification & Management Program (RAMP.up) at the Albers School of Business and Economics has provided free wraparound consulting and capacity building services to Black-owned businesses in the Central Area since 2016. These local brick and mortar businesses are current or former RAMP.up clients, help us build our community by supporting these nearby entrepreneurs!
