Start an Enactus Team
On Your Campus
Enactus is more than just another student organization. Enactus is Canada’s largest experiential learning platform for post-secondary students. Participating universities and colleges join a network of institutions and academic leaders from around the world.
As the administrator, supporter or faculty advisor of an Enactus team, you provide an important learning experience for students that will last throughout their careers. It is a professionally-rewarding experience that makes a difference in the lives of your students and reflects positively on your campus.

BENEFITS OF STARTING A TEAM ON YOUR CAMPUS
MOTIVATE AND INSPIRE YOUR STUDENTS
Enactus, in partnership with leaders from business and higher education, provides students with a platform where they can apply what they’re learning in the classroom to real-world business and economic issues. Enactus students develop real projects that achieve real results for real people, resulting in more motivated students who approach their education with a greater sense of ownership and social purpose. Participating students also gain access to exclusive partner events, opportunities, and more.
BUILD COMMUNITY RELATIONSHIPS
Enactus provides a perfect tool for building relationships between your university and local communities. From the nature of the projects they implement, Enactus teams position themselves and their university as valuable members of the community. A successful Enactus team exemplifies the quality of the institution they represent, the caliber of its students, and the important role it can play in the community.
CONNECT WITH OTHER LEADERS
The advisors and executives involved with Enactus represent an influential group of leaders from a diverse range of universities and industries. As an Enactus academic supporter, you have the opportunity to participate in this network through numerous events at the regional, national and international level. Beyond individual connections, the Enactus network also raises the profile of your university within the business community.
ENHANCE THE PROFILE OF YOUR ACADEMIC INSTITUTION
Enactus teams directly contribute to the positive reputation of their university or college with each of their successes. They have fun, travel and represent their institution at regional, national, and global competitions where teams showcase the impact of their efforts to thousands of delegates each year.
