EWB-USA UMN: Our Mission
The mission of Engineers Without Borders USA – University of Minnesota is to partner with communities locally and internationally in order to assess and address community-identified unmet needs. We strive to implement engineered projects that prove environmentally, economically, and socially sustainable. At the core of this mission is our commitment to building strong relationships with partner communities and organizations, institutional resources (including UMN and EWB-USA), our student volunteers, and professional mentors. Both as individuals and as a chapter, we are dedicated to continually learning, improving, and adapting.
