Julie Duerst Bennett, associate professor of business at Central Methodist University (CMU), has been named to the Enactus United States Faculty Advisory Committee. Bennett, currently chair of the Accounting, Business and Economics Department, is the Enactus Sam Walton Fellow at CMU.

Bennett has been advisor for the CMU chapter of Enactus, previously known as Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE), since she came to Central eight years ago.

Her role as a member of the Faculty Advisory Committee will be to help enhance Enactus programming activities and to assist in strategies that enhance Enactus team relations within the Enactus network. Enactus faculty advisors on this committee represent the diverse network of colleges and universities that make up Enactus United States.

Bennett praised her experience with CMU's SIFE/Enactus group. "It is such a pleasure to watch and help the students create, plan, organize and complete their projects," she says, "especially those projects that aid in creating a better life and future opportunities for others."

She says the CMU Enactus team took to heart the mission to make the group more inclusive and diverse. It has embraced the focus of growing together, learning for life, aiding in sustaining their community, and working to impact the world in a positive manner.

The CMU Enactus team was first runner-up in its division in May during the 2013 National Competition in Kansas City. It was also honored as a 4.0 Club, which recognizes teams for quality education programs, success in Enactus and long-term sustainability in enabling progress through entrepreneurial action.

More than 530 teams and 21,000 university students make up Enactus in the United States. It also has numerous international chapters.

"I am honored to be selected to represent CMU and our Enactus team at the national level," Bennett says. "I believe I will be a caring, informed voice, a resource and an advocate for smaller universities on the Enactus U.S. Advisory Committee."
