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 (SIFE) at USF, Inc., founded on the principles of free enterprise, serves members of the community through educational outreach projects that embody social, economic, environmental sustainability. In addition, SIFE at USF provides the best opportunity for its members to develop leadership, teamwork, and communication skills through learning, practicing, and teaching the principles of free enterprise using the People=Planet-Prosperity business model. SIFE runs the "Green Water Project” a new, alternative method for USF students, faculty, and staff to obtain clean, fresh, filtered water through the use of water dispensers on campus. They also sell reuasable aluminum water bottles at the USF Bookstore, and work with outside business to help them green their infrastructure and operations.
