Engineers Without Borders

The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee student chapter of Engineers Without Borders (EWB@UWM) works in coordination with EWB-USA, a non-profit humanitarian organization established to improve the quality of life in developing communities.  Their work over the past decade at UWM has brought running water to rural villages in Guatemala, as well as access to rain water catchment in community gardens across Milwaukee.

Re-volv Solar Ambassadors at UWM

As UW-Milwaukee’s Solar Ambassador Team, the organization is an affiliate of RE-volv, a non-profit based out of San Francisco. The goal is to run a grassroots crowdfunding campaign to have solar systems installed on local non-profits and cooperatives. Projects include River Revitalization Foundation and Riverwest Co-Op, working to raise funds and supply community education and empowerment. The non-profits then pay back RE-volv monthly on their 20 year lease-to-own plan, while still saving money off of their typical electric bill. A percentage of those proceeds are transferred to the solar seed fund that funds future solar projects. Over time there will be no need for crowdfunding campaigns because the solar seed fund will be able to fully cover future projects creating a RE-volv(ing) fund.

Fruity Nutty Club

The Fruity Nutty Club at UWM was formed 2017 with the goal to engage local community members of all ages and backgrounds in sustainable food production. Through establishing an on-campus fruit orchard, planted on Earth Day (April 22) of 2017, we will provide a beautiful space to reach out to the UWM community and get hands-on experience tending an orchard. Members take part in caring for the trees as well as hosting recreational and educational events. No experience is necessary. All who are interested are welcome to join.
