Immaculata University students who are team members of the Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) will be travelling to Minneapolis, Minnesota from May 11 -13, to compete in the 2010 SIFE USA National Exposition after winning the regional championship recently.
According to the SIFE USA Competitions web site, the SIFE competitions are one of the largest collegiate competitions in the country with more than 400 schools competing based on the most impact their projects had in improving people´s lives.
SIFE, an international, non-profit organization, works with leaders in business and higher education to enlist students to enhance their communities and thus develop skills to become business leaders who are socially responsible. Immaculata´s SIFE team held several events throughout the year ranging from raising funds for breast cancer to donating food for a hunger drive.
Immaculata´s SIFE team consists of 17 students, many whom are business majors. Jacqueline Bull, Ph.D., associate professor of Business, is the advisor for the Immaculata University SIFE team and will travel with the students to Minnesota.
Immaculata University, a Catholic, coeducational institution, is located 20 miles west of Philadelphia, south of the intersection of routes 30 and 352, between Paoli and Exton.
