Our Mission

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.
