In the project, ENACTUS helped struggling local small business that needed assistance with management skills, inventory control and marketing techniques. A second project, “Empowering Dreams,” sponsored by the Coca Cola Foundation, helped a local business owner create databases, set up a payroll system and promote it by creating a logo and sign. Others included “Stand Up for Women,” sponsored by the Wal-Mart, Grant, “Understanding Disabilities,” and a project with the Laredo Animal Protective Society.

For their part, the School of Business Student Advisory Council worked on a project known as “Pizza with the Dean,” an opportunity for dialogue between the business student community and the School of Business dean.
