Dr. Ben Blackford, Assistant Professor of Management, is the Northwest Enactus (formerly SIFE) team's sponsor. Over the past few years, the Northwest Enactus team has competed at regional competitions in California, New York, and Arkansas.

Enactus is an international non-profit organization that works with leaders in business and higher education to mobilize university students to make a difference in their communities while developing the skills to become socially responsible business leaders. Participating students form teams on their university campuses and apply business concepts to develop outreach projects that improve the quality of life and standard of living for people in need. An annual series of regional and national competitions provides a forum for teams to present the results of their projects, and to be evaluated by business leaders serving as judges. National champion teams advance to the prestigious Enactus World Cup. In addition to the community aspect of the program, Enactus leadership and career initiatives create meaningful opportunities for learning and exchange among the participants as well as the placement of students and alumni with companies in search of emerging talent.
The Enactus team provides many opportunities to work with young students, faculty and staff, and potential employers.
