Our Organization

Sustainability Without Borders (SWB) is a student organization sponsored by the Center for Sustainable Systems at the University of Michigan’s School for Environment and Sustainability. Our members offer diverse backgrounds including engineering, conservation, business, and international development. Together we work to create projects in partnership with outside organizations to further communities on the path to sustainability.

Our Mission

SWB seeks to empower students with the skills to become leading sustainability practitioners by engaging with communities in bidirectional learning to jointly develop and implement environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable projects. A motivated core group of SWB officers and project leaders are at the heart of this mission.
