"What can SIFE do for you? SIFE is an international organization that mobilizes university students around the world to make a difference in their communities while developing the skills to become socially responsible business leader."


The Fredonia State SIFE Team was established 14 years ago by Business Professor, Dr. Franklin B. Krohn. For the past 11 years, the presentation team has won the Regional SIFE competition in Cleveland, Ohio held every Spring semester and have advanced to the National SIFE competition held in various cities throughout the USASIFE. Four SIFE students developed SIFE Goes To Jail in the Fall 2007 semester and has since expanded as a repeated project. Our SUNY Fredonia SIFE Team wants to instill the valuable lessons learned during this project into your new or existing SIFE Team.


To provide the opportunity to help successfully integrate inmates back into the work force by preparing them for the business world from the round up. By teaching inmates necessary business skills such as resume writing, interview skills, and business etiquette we hope to lower the number of repeat offenders.
