What is Enactus?
Enactus is a global nonprofit organization that provides a platform for teams of outstanding university students to create community development projects that put people's own ingenuity and talents at the center of improving their livelihoods. Guided by educators and supported by business leaders, Enactus students take the kind of entrepreneurial approach that empowers people to be a part of their own success.
It is the mission of Enactus to improve the world through entrepreneurial action, and the work Enactus students perform not only transforms the lives of the people served, but in turn, also transforms the lives of the participating students as they develop into more effective, values-driven leaders.

The Transportation Insight Center for Entrepreneurship is looking for students to join other founding App State students as members of an Enactus chapter at Appalachian State. Entering only its fourth semester as an established organization, Enactus Appalachian is looking for dedicated students to help ensure it grows, thrives, and ultimately makes a positive impact.
