Our Mission

We are passionate students, in business for Christ, empowering communities by building relationships and connecting resources to achieve sustainable results. 

 

Who We Are

Working with leading corporate partners and member universities, Enactus United States establishes student programs on campuses across the nation. With the support and encouragement of their Enactus advisors and a local business advisory board, students apply business concepts to develop community outreach projects that improve the quality of life and standard of living for people in need.

The Enactus program is designed to foster an entrepreneurial approach that encourages creativity and resourcefulness. Enactus teams address a wide variety of issues, and rather than mandating a uniform set of projects, teams have the opportunity to work within the framework while developing projects based on the diverse needs of people in different communities.

By using the business concepts they are learning in the classroom to help others, students develop stronger business and leadership skills, as well as a sense of service and responsibility to the community and world around them. Through their experiences, students are emerging as leaders who understand the opportunity for business to make a positive economic, social and environmental impact.
 

What We Do

Enactus identifies needs on our campus, in our community, and throughout the world, develops plans to meet these needs, and executes those plans to make our world a better place.

 

Each initiative is called a project. To learn more about our current and completed projects, please visit our project page.
