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. Our current international project is in Guatemala partnering with the El Amate community. We have a five year commitment to this community. Over this time, we assess the needs of the community and implement engineering solutions that will improve the quality of life for the members of the community. So far, we have designed and started building a school and will begin a bathroom addition soon.

Domestic Project :: There is people who could benefit from engineering aid and innovation right here in the states. Our chapter is excited to announce that we are laying the ground work for a project that will aid Nassau County, Florida. The challenge presented is to retro-fit school buses to transport free/reduced school lunches to the county’s children during the summer time. Out of 6,000 students that qualify for the program only 300 kids have 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. The projects are usually more common community service projects. For the 2016-17 year, we plan to travel to Kansas City to volunteer with the Urban Farming Guys.

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. Check out and follow us on any of our social media platforms to find out when our next general meeting is and to get updates on all the exciting things our chapter is doing!
