a community of students, faculty, and business leaders committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to enable human progress. In Enactus, students use business concepts to develop entrepreneurial projects that transform lives and shape a better, more sustainable world. Originally founded in 1975 as SIFE (Students in Free Enterprise), today Enactus has grown beyond the U.S. to encompass 36 countries around the globe.
Participation in Enactus provides university students with the opportunity to make a meaningful difference in their communities, while gaining the experience, skills and contacts necessary to build a successful career. Enactus students are talented, hard working, value-driven leaders that blend a competitive spirit and desire to succeed with a sense of integrity and desire to give something back. As a member of an Enactus team, you’ll be joining a worldwide network of more than 70,500 other students who are each making their own contribution toward our shared mission of creating a better world. It’s an experience that will change the lives of those in need and quite possibly your own as well.
Enactus is a team-based activity – you’ll be a member of a team that represents Walla Walla University within the community and the Enactus network, directly contributing to the positive reputation of your university with each success you have. You’ll also represent your WWU in competition with other colleges and universities at the national level and if your team is good enough, you’ll have the once in a lifetime chance to compete for a world championship against the best teams in the world. As you and your teammates go about the process of building your team, developing projects, finding funding, overcoming obstacles and adversity and participating in a competition, you’ll develop the kinds of bonds and friendships that can last a lifetime.
