About our EWB-USA student chapter

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 sustainable, equitable, and economical engineering projects. While advancing the quality of life in these communities, EWB-USA works to develop globally aware and personally responsible engineers and students.

The University of Nebraska student chapter of EWB-USA is a student-run organization with members from both Lincoln and Omaha campuses. Our student chapter works in Madagascar in partnership with the Madagascar Biodiversity Partnership, an offshoot of the Henry Doorly Zoo's conservation work in Madgascar.

EWB-USA is an organization that supports community-driven development programs worldwide through the design and implementation of sustainable engineering projects, while fostering responsible leadership.
