VUSIFE is Vanguard University’s local community of Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE), an international non-profit organization that works in partnership with business and higher education. SIFE mobilizes students to discover their own potential by creating economic opportunity for others through community outreach projects. SIFE is active on 1,800 college and university campuses in 48 countries.

Our chapter of SIFE was formed in Spring of 2006 by Students on Vanguard’s Community. She was involved with an internship for Advantage Marketing and they explained the importance of belonging to an organization like SIFE, in order to achieve real-world experience along side your academic education. That created the passion that she had for launching a SIFE team at Vanguard before she graduated in May. She persuaded Business Professor Bonni Stachowiak if she would be the faculty advisor for SIFE and the rest is history…Since 2006, VUSIFE has focused on teaching innovative techniques for achieving success through teamwork and the positive power of business in Southern California.

We have grown in numbers and experience since our beginning in 2006, and our members include students from all different majors and backgrounds, we invite everyone to get involved. Primarily we have International business, Communications, Business Administration and Marketing majors as a part of our team but we are always looking for new opportunities to grow our team’s depth of experience and impact on the world!
