ORU Enactus TeamAfter winning the Enactus regional competition in April, Oral Roberts University’s Enactus chapter has been invited to compete in the United States National Competition on May 21-23 in Kansas City, Mo.

The national competition will allow ORU business students to showcase their collective impact and community outreach efforts. Students will present their projects to business leaders serving as judges. The teams will then be ranked according to their success at utilizing business concepts to enable progress through entrepreneurial action.

ORU’s Enactus chapter was heavily involved in the Tulsa community this past year. Throughout the 2012-2013 school year students raised over 50,000 pounds of food for the hungry, taught underprivileged children how to read and initiated the first-ever national conference for young burn survivors between the ages of 15 and 20.

Enactus is an international non-profit organization that brings together student, academic and business leaders committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to transform lives and shape a better more sustainable world. The organization has a presence in approximately 1600 university campuses located in 38 countries across the world.
