What Is Enactus?
Enactus is a global non-profit organization active in more than 40 countries. Enactus challenges students to take what they're learning in the classroom and use their knowledge to better their communities. Enactus is funded by financial contributions from corporations, entrepreneurs, foundations, government agencies and individuals.
Enactus establishes student teams on university campuses. These teams are led by faculty advisors, which are named Sam M. Walton Free Enterprise Fellows in honor of the late Wal-Mart founder, and they are challenged to develop community outreach projects that help empower people in need through a variety of free enterprise-related ways.
