"This retail partnership with GVSU is a full circle
milestone," Cohen said. "We share the university's
commitment to advancing the whole person health of students, faculty
and staff. This Inspiration Station is about more than commerce.
Daily, each of us needs to read, see and hear words that inspire and
affirm us. We are making messages of hope accessible and portable for
difference makers on the go."
Valerie Rhodes-Sorrelle, vendor relations manager for Procurement
Services, said it's important to seek out and promote diverse suppliers.
"Small and diverse suppliers contribute to the overall economic
growth and well-being of the communities where we live and work,"
Rhodes-Sorrell said. "When there are more options, more voices
and more ideas, there are more opportunities for business excellence."
