Susquehanna University's Enactus advisor, George Cravitz, was recently inducted into the Hall of Fame for Sam Walton Free Enterprise Fellows at the Enactus National Exposition held in St. Louis, Mo.
Cravitz received the award for his notable contributions, service and commitment to the Susquehanna University Enactus team and to the advancement of the entire Enactus organization.
Formerly Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE), Enactus is an international nonprofit organization that brings together student, academic and business leaders. They apply business concepts to develop community outreach projects that improve the quality of life and standard of living for people in need. In the process, student teams develop leadership, teamwork and communication skills.
With Cravitz as advisor, Susquehanna's Enactus chapter has regularly received regional and even national recognition for its volunteer projects.
Each year, Enactus national leaders recognize three faculty advisors who have made significant contributions to furthering the organization's mission.
Cravitz serves as Susquehanna's Sam Walton Fellow, a position affiliated with the university's Sigmund Weis School of Business (SWSB). He has served as the Enactus team's advisor for the past 10 years and has worked at the university for 35 years.
A former director of the SWSB's Leadership Institute for Entrepreneurship, Cravitz teaches education courses in curriculum, instruction and assessment. He also supervises student teachers at the undergraduate and teacher intern levels, and he serves as a committee member of the State System of Assessment.
