IU Enactus Team
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.
Along with their pride in completing projects, Enactus team members benefit from networking with 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 purpose of each project is to identify desired long-term changes and work with individuals, schools, and companies in seeking to make these positive changes successfully. Many Enactus corporate sponsors award grant funds to aid in completing team projects.
