ALLIANCE, OH – Since school has started again, very interesting things have been happening. One of the interesting things is, former EABA chair, Mark McConnell, has taken the initiative to start a club called, “Enactus” on campus. Enactus has been something that McConnell has been wanting to start for a very long time, but just now has had the time to do so. So far he has recruited about 20 or so different people among his outreach in the EABA department along with a few others. 

What is Enactus? Enactus’ mission is to engage the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders to use innovation and business principles to improve the world. Their vision is to create a better sustainable world. The club uses the United Nations 17 sustainable goals and asks the various chapters to come up with innovative ways to create sustainable change within their communities or the world. Anything can range from reusing giant vinyl signs to repurpose them into stylish purses to starting a mattress recycling plant creating work for the homeless and recently incarcerated. Enactus so far consists of 72,000 students across 1,730 different campuses in 36 countries. 

Enactus has a lot to offer on this campus and has a tremendous amount of opportunities. If you’re interested in finding out more, feel free to go to www.enactus.org or reach out to University of Mount Union professor, Mark McConnell, to find out when they will be meeting next.
