Message From Leadership

Dr. Kathy Cox, Associate Vice President of Strategic Partnership

I have had the pleasure of being the Faculty Advisor to the City University of Seattle (CityU) Enactus team for ten years. In addition to Enactus, I have been an academic program director and for the last two years, I represent CityU as the associate VP of Strategic Partnerships. Enactus is a global non-profit organization that promotes experiential learning by accomplishing financial and social good outcomes.

Many STC students have thrived with Enactus. The students and alumni say their experience in Enactus improves their teamwork, project management, and presentation skills. Their resumes and interviews are full of their Enactus experiences, and many have said their Enactus experience working with community partners resulted in their job success. The extra benefits of participating in Enactus is a potential officer scholarship and lifetime friends.

I have enjoyed seeing our Enactus team grow in their skills and their passion to make a difference. This year the National Enactus judges awarded CityU with the first ever Early-Stage National Champion. You can see their competition video here.

If you are interested in learning more about the CityU Enactus team, please contact (Susan) Suong Nguyen or Thamiris Cortes De Aguiar
