About

EWB-KSU is a student chapter that actively works toward living out the mission and vision of EWB-USA. Which are…

Mission: EWB-KSU aims to serve both our local and international communities by implementing sustainable engineering solutions while cultivating student leaders who are accountable to each other and our partners.  

Vision: EWB-USA’s vision is a world in which every community has the capacity to sustainably meet their basic human needs.

Currently, our student chapter is working to live these statements out through a variety of projects. We focus on three types of humanitarian projects: international, domestic, and local.

International Project: This is what truly sets our student organization apart from others. We have a current international project partnering with the community of El Amante, Guatemala to build a kitchen. Previously, we instigated the construction of a school, latrine system, and retaining wall in the same community. We are also working alongside El Cascabel, Nicaragua to create access to a clean source of water and Santiago del Coyolito, Nicaragua to install irrigation systems in farms that often experience droughts. With each commitment to a community, we assess the needs and implement an engineering solutions that will improve the quality of life for the members.

Domestic Project: People in the United States can benefit from engineering aid and innovation as well. Our most recent chapter project retro-fit school buses in Nassau County, Florida in an effort to transport free/reduced school lunches to the country's children during the summer time. Out of 6,000 students that qualify for the program only 300 kids received them in previous years.

Local Projects: These are smaller projects with shorter time commitment that tend to change based on the interests of the students member involved during each academic year. Last year, we partnered with Habitat for Humanity and used our knowledge to design and build a wheelchair ramp.

We would like to extend an invitation to all K-State students to join our chapter. Anyone has the ability to contribute in a useful and unique way, all it takes is the desire to get involved and make a difference in peoples’ lives.
