Enactus is 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.
The Walla Walla University Enactus Chapter is part of an international organization that connects students and leaders through entrepreneurial-based projects. These projects empower people to transform opportunities into real, sustainable progress for themselves and their communities. We aspire to bring like-minded individuals together to meet the vision/mission of Enactus as well as the WWU core themes of excellence in thought, generosity in service, beauty in expression, and faith in God.
Over the past two decades, the WWU Chapter has won a number of awards in regional and national competitions; but more importantly, we continue to engage in innovative projects that impact social enterprise and create a better world.
