Immaculata University’s Enactus team emerged as the League Champion at the Enactus Regional Championship held in Baltimore recently.  They are invited to the National Championship held in Kansas City, MO in mid-May.

The Immaculata Enactus team demonstrated the meaning of entrepreneurship in action through its outstanding work organizing three projects: contributing to Campbell’s “Let’s Can Hunger” projects, assisting Wings for Success with gathering donations of professional clothing for economically disadvantaged women, and supporting HumanKind Water through various marketing initiatives.

“They have made a sustainable difference in the world by using their entrepreneurship in action and were recognized for this success by the business representatives who are the judges and who come from businesses including Home Depot, Campbell Soup, Walmart, Bimbo Bakeries, and others,” commented Charlene Fitzwater, Ph.D., chair of the Business and Accounting Department and an advisor for the IU Enactus team.

Enactus is a community of student, academic and business leaders committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to enable human progress. Enactus students apply business concepts to develop community outreach projects, transform lives, and shape a better, more sustainable world. By using their entrepreneurial knowledge to help others, students develop stronger business and leadership skills; a sense of service and responsibility; and an understanding of how business can have a positive economic, social and environmental impact.
