The IU Enactus team has been active since 2004. Enactus is an international organization that pairs college students with corporate sponsors. These corporate sponsors enable participating colleges to compete in regional, national, and global competitions.
The IU Enactus team was awarded first runner-up in the regional competition in 2008, and second runner-up in the 2009 regional competition. In both 2010 and 2011, the IU team won in their competing leagues to then present in the national competition in Minneapolis, MN.
Immaculata's Enactus Team was a finalist in the 2012 national exposition in Cincinatti, Ohio. The team demonstrated the meaning of entrepreneurship in action (Enactus) through its outstanding work on initiatives for Wings for Success, Campbell’s "Let’s Can Hunger" projects, and HumanKind Water.
Along with the pride in completing Enactus projects, Enactus team members benefit from networking with these corporate sponsors. Over the years, members have obtained both internships and full employment positions solely due to Enactus connections.
Students volunteer their time to complete projects. The rationale of each project is to determine and then successfully work with individuals, schools, and companies in seeking to make positive, long-term changes. Many of the Enactus corporate sponsors award grant funds to aid in completing team projects.
