Organization Changes Name to Enactus

Students In Free Enterprise, (SIFE), is changing its name to Enactus to reaffirm its long-standing commitment to using entrepreneurial action as a catalyst for progress.

The organization has pioneered a groundbreaking model that deploys student teams, with the advice and support of academic and business leaders, to design and implement community empowerment projects in 39 countries.

The name change is the first step in an aggressive effort to expand the organization’s level of reach and impact. Approximately 57,000 students participate in Enactus projects each year.

In the 2011-2012 academic year, the Truman Enactus team organized 13 projects in the Kirksville and Northeast Missouri area and devoted more than 2,800 hours to confronting the challenges in this area and assisting those in need.
