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:

The BREW (Becoming Responsibly Engaged in the World) Cafe, opened in 2013 as a student-run venture and opportunity to learn business skills, as well as to become responsibly engaged in the world through commerce.

The BREW Cafe offers a discount for using a reusable mug, uses products made from recycled content, and is currently saving to purchase a soda fountain, so that they may forgo selling beverages in plastic bottles. The BREW sells products like coffee and sandwiches and how students determine what they sell, how employees will be treated, how we engage customers in dialog about fair trade and local sourcing is a perfect opportunity to BREW. The program challenged student managers and workers to apply this lens to business decisions.
