Does the institution have a student-run enterprise, such as a cafe, through which students gain sustainable business skills?:

A brief description of the enterprise:

Students in Free Enterprise or SIFE is a club that competes on a national level with their innovative programs, many of which are related to sustainability such as offsetting the amount of carbon used to run the club. Through the Donald McNeely Center for Entrepreneurship, students are able to realize their dreams of viable social entrepreneurship businesses. Some examples include a fair trade embroidery cooperative with the indigenous women in the Andes, WeCar, and Clemens Perk, a wholly student operated cafe which practices sustainability by composting coffee grounds, purchasing only fair trade coffee and encouraging students to bring thier own mugs.
