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:

"Ivey Connects" is a student-led organization working to inspire students at the Richard Ivey School of Business to contribute in the societies in which they operate, a vital aspect of the school's mission statement. Ivey Connects provides opportunities for students to give their time through volunteerism and fundraising efforts, and their talent - management or otherwise - to those in need in the community, such as Non-Profit organizations. The goal is for long-term relationships to be built between Ivey and these organizations and to provide students with exposure to these organizations, while also having a hand in running their own charity programs and events.
In addition to these, there are Non-Profit summer internships being provided through the program, along with pro-bono projects linked with Ivey and Western Law.
