Engineers Without Borders University of Minnesota (EWB-UMN)

The mission of Engineers Without Borders University of Minnesota Chapter (EWB-UMN) is to partner with disadvantaged communities around the world, and to improve their quality of life through implementation of engineered projects that prove environmentally and economically sustainable. Our goals are achieved through cooperation with each other, fellow institutions, and mentors on the basis of commitment, persistence and concern for the recipients of our efforts. We strive to uphold and advance our principles for international responsibility and look forward to applying the experience in our future engineering careers. Members need not be students or engineers!! A few hours of time and expertise go a long way to help projects succeed all around the globe. Please pass along to anyone who might be interested.

Dear Friends,

Today, another earthquake (Magnitude 7.3-5) hit Nepal, further destroying communities already reeling from the first earthquake wave. The death-toll continues to rise. As members of EWB, we recognize that infrastructure can be so vital to communities in need. Even if it is just one dollar, please donate to any vetted charity that is helping. I've attached a link to the one I'm donating to.

I know what you're thinking. You're thinking "Oh its cloudy. I'm not gonna go to the duck regatta." But it will be sunny at 3:00! So slap some zinc oxide on your schnoz and come race some rubber ducks at east river flats!
