Engineers Without Borders-USA (EWB-USA) is an international non-profit organization committed to improving the quality of life in developing communities through the implementation of environmentally & culturally sustainable, equitable, and economical engineering projects that are community driven. While advancing the quality of life in these communities, EWB-USA works to develop globally aware and personally responsible engineers, while fostering responsible leadership.
The University of Nebraska student chapter of EWB-USA is a student-run organization with members from both Lincoln and Omaha campuses and strong support of engineering firms and UNL & UNO alums. Our student chapter works in Madagascar in partnership with the Madagascar Biodiversity Partnership, an offshoot of the Henry Doorly Zoo's conservation work in Madagascar. Our projects in Madagascar are focused on solar energy solutions, and improved water quality and quantity. We also work with community organizations in both Lincoln and Omaha on various community service projects.
