SIFE 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 SIFE World Cup. In addition to the community aspect of the program, SIFE’s 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.  SIFE is in 39 countries, has 1,500 teams, 48,000 active students, 8,700 community projects   and has used 4,900.000 student volunteer hours.

Mission:  To bring together the top leaders of today and tomorrow to create a better, more sustainable world through the positive power of business.

18 members of the UNL SIFE Team will attend the 2011 National Exposition May 10-12 in Minneapolis, MN where they will once again compete for a national title.  We wish them luck!
