If you are a student at CWRU, there are many great ways to get connected and involved in one of CWRU’s sustainability-related student groups. Here are some groups to get you started in reducing your impact:
Engineers without Borders
Engineers without Borders is a student organization offering opportunities to students from the major of engineering to connect with undeserved communities on a local and global scale, in order to provide these communities with sustainable solutions. These engineers work in areas of clean water, and clean energy, and work together to promote socially and environmentally sustainable communities. To learn more about the global organization, check out Engineers without Border’s website or to connect with CWRU’s branch of the organization contact the Center for Civic Engagement and Learning at 216.368.6960.
Food Recovery Network
CWRU's chapter of the Food Recovery Network endeavors to connect left over food to those without food in the greater Cleveland area. Founded in 2014, the group regularly picks up day old baked items from Einstein's Bagels on campus and drop offs at West Side Catholic Center, which serves meals to those in need. They also work with Bon Appetit to donate left over food to other charities. Connect with them on Facebook or email their leadership at firstname.lastname@example.org.
