Thomas University begins ENACTUS organization

By Joshua Barrett, TU student writer

This fall Thomas University Business Instructor Mina Haretos started an ENACTUS group. Students from different backgrounds meet weekly to establish the group and plan upcoming events. 

According to its website, ENACTUS stands for “ENtrepreneurial ACtion for others creates a better world for US all.” The organization encourages students to collaborate with academic and business leaders in developing various community service projects.

“Students interested in joining should realize ENACTUS offers many opportunities, such as exposure to a team-based organization, a place where you can enhance your entrepreneurial abilities, and a place to have fun while doing the work,” Haretos said.

ENACTUS is an organization focused on making a difference in the world by bringing students together.

“The students create projects intended to make a difference in their community and world,” Haretos said.

Jennifer Guyton is one of seven students who helped start the organization on campus.

“ENACTUS gives students a competitive advantage when applying for jobs,” Guyton said.  “It allows the student to develop their entrepreneurial skills. It also allows students to create a positive change in their communities by developing projects to create a sustainable environment. Bringing ENACTUS to Thomas University is important because we can raise awareness in the community about this organization and what it does for our environment. I joined ENACTUS because I wanted to make a positive impact within our community.” 

Right now group members are deciding on community service projects to implement in the spring, especially entrepreneurial efforts. ENACTUS welcomes new members and community partners.
