DWU’s Enactus Chapter heads to 2014 Enactus United States National Exposition

Thursday, March 27, 2014

Students from the Dakota Wesleyan University Enactus team are preparing for the Enactus United States National Exposition in Cincinnati, Ohio, in April.

Enactus is an international nonprofit that engages more than 66,000 students to empower people through entrepreneurial action. Each year, these students compete to represent their country in a global competition called the Enactus World Cup.

Enactus teams from more than 200 colleges and universities across the United States will present their community outreach projects April 1-3 to a judging panel of esteemed business leaders, demonstrating how they are transforming lives and enabling progress in their communities. This year, the Dakota Wesleyan University Enactus team developed projects that impacted thousands of members of the Mitchell and Dakota Wesleyan Community, including creating a sustainable recycling image on campus and expanding the Mitchell Weekend Snack Pack program.

“Our primary focus this year was to expand our current Go Green recycling project and further develop the Weekend Snack Pack program, which has grown tremendously since its move to our campus,” said Micaela Erickson, DWU Enactus team president. “We have had a great response from the community and the school in regards to these projects and the work our team has done, so we are excited to present at the national competition.”
