Extracurricular Groups and Clubs

A key belief we have in our department is the importance of getting involved in our many out-of-class opportunities. Participation in extra-curricular activities in the environmental field leads to more learning, more networking, and overall more success. Students in clubs together tend to study more, collaborate more, and have a more fulfilling university experience. 

Alpha Kappa Chi is a co-educational professional environmental fraternity whose mission is to promote the self-confidence, professionalism, and brotherhood among member individuals in preparation for and commitment to practicing environmental sustainability.

Engineers for a Sustainable World is a club that works to directly improve the quality of life on Earth through active example and by proactively working to lessen the harmful impact of humanity on the environment. Members of ESW use both engineering knowledge and practicality to pursue this goal, while simultaneously improving their own skill sets through the work that they do.

As such, ESW-UB holds these to be the values and goals of our club at this university: 
1. To work to actively improve the world through projects both on and off campus 
2. To improve knowledge of sustainable methods of living and engineering both in ESW and in the community 
3. To use public outreach to motivate and empower others so that they recognize and act on the importance of incorporating sustainable living into daily life 
4. To improve the technical knowledge (and resumes) of our members while pursing these sustainable goals
