The Enactus team won its 11th consecutive Regional Competition in Baltimore, Md., this past March, and traveled to Kansas City, Mo., to compete at the Enactus 2013 National Competition in May. The team presented three projects and placed in the top 10 percent of all Enactus teams across the nation. They also received a special honor for being one of the top 10 teams in the nation for empowering female entrepreneurs. With 49 active members, the RWC Enactus team has initiated eight projects designed to meet a social, economic or environmental need in the community during the 2012-2013 academic year, impacting more than 1,000 people.

“We are committed to seeing our students at Roberts Wesleyan become thoughtful, servant leaders who will transform our society and world,” Roberts Wesleyan College President John A. Martin said. “Enactus gives students the outlet to do just that by serving people in the local community, and the world, with the passions and skill sets they have.”

Enactus is a global nonprofit organization and community of student, academic and business leaders committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to transform lives. The RWC Enactus team has been ranked in the top 1% in the nation, placing fifth out of 535 U.S. teams for two consecutive years. They have partnerships in India, Guatemala and the Rochester community, with a proven track record of successful results and sustainable projects.
