Enactus


Clubs & Organizations - Enactus Image

Enactus (formerly Students in Free Enterprise "SIFE") is an international non-profit organization that brings together student, academic and business leaders who are committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to improve the quality of life and standard of living for people in need. Guided by academic advisors and business experts, the student leaders of Enactus create and implement community empowerment projects around the globe. The experience not only transforms lives, it helps students develop the kind of talent and perspective that are essential to leadership in an ever-more complicated and challenging world.

Our Values:

Imagination

Every crisis creates opportunity, every struggle offers the chance to rediscover. Everything we do is born from the ability to see potential where others can’t.

Courage

The willingness to try, fail and learn on the journey toward creating something new is just as critical as the passion to succeed. There is no substitute for being willing to lead—especially when the territory being covered is new and the outcome is uncertain.

Determination

Meaningful change is not easy. It requires the ability to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles and face often daunting challenges. We have the persistence to do what it takes to achieve the results we seek.

Partnership

There is no greater force for change than a team of people who are personally invested in each other, and in the lives of the people who their work is intended to serve.

Accountability

Every initiative or project we undertake will be judged by the only measure that matters: how effectively we create lasting and meaningful progress in the lives of those we serve.

Curiosity

We are passionate about seeking new perspectives and challenging long-standing assumptions because we know effective leadership requires continuous learning.
