CityU Enactus Team Wins Regional Competition, April 2013
Our PurposeTo enable progress through entrepreneurial action.
Our MissionDevelop tomorrow's leaders to create a sustainable world through the positive power of business. Enactus has been active at City University of Seattle since 2004. It started when a group of Master of Business Administration students wanted to help their community and world in a real way. When the students approached the faculty about bringing Enactus on campus, the CityU administration and faculty were immediately on board - as the organization directly supported CityU's mission of providing a relevant and lifelong education for our students. CityU's Enactus team has been growing each year since and has been very successful at establishing relationships with businesses such as HSBC, Wal-Mart, Safeway, Starbucks, Microsoft, Lowe’s and Best Buy.
