EWB’s University of Guelph Chapter was established in 2003 by Engineering students seeking to develop a deeper understanding of how to make the world a better place. Engaging with engineering and non-Engineering students, EWB has brought students from across campus to work together on development projects locally and internationally. From advocating thousands of students on campus about fair trade products to engaging in tough conversations about challenging topics, EWB Guelph is highly active in the community. As we grow our chapter, we are determined to increase our EWB footprint on campus, and in the community.
