Student Organizations


Enactus is a global, nonprofit student organization, which specializes in learning, practicing, and teaching the principles of free enterprise. The purpose of Enactus is to expand students' abilities outside of the classroom by using their knowledge and skills to educate members of the James Madison University and local communities; as well as businesses in the surrounding area through community service and occasional philanthropy.

Net Impact is a global organization of students and professionals using business to improve the world.  We have 250 chapters with 15,000 members spanning six continents, including current and emerging leaders in corporate social responsibility, social entrepreneurship, nonprofit management, international development and environmental sustainability. Open to faculty, graduate and undergraduate students, and staff. 

Society of Entrepreneurs

The JMU Society of Entrepreneurs brings James Madison University entrepreneurially minded students together. In the organization we educate each other and the JMU community on topics of interest, support each other with new ventures, and reach out to entrepreneurs in the community to help them and learn from them. The society also hosts speakers and events to educate the JMU community about different topics based around entrepreneurship. The club was launched in 2011 and became a recognized organization by JMU in spring of 2012.  To be a part of regularly scheduled meetings, students must apply, be interviewed, and accepted into the organization. After going through a process to learn the fundamentals of startups, they will become an official member of the society.
