A: EWB has organization-wide meetings once a month. See the calendar or our newsletter for dates and locations of these meetings. Each project meets weekly in CE 104 at 7 PM on a designated day of the week. Nicaragua meets on Mondays, Costa Rica on Tuesdays, and Peru on Thursdays. While project meetings are typically weekly, some circumstances may cause less frequently scheduled meetings.

Q: Who gets to travel?
A: Our travel teams typically consist of around 7-10 students and one faculty member – depending on the trip objectives. The student team members are chosen by the project leads through an application process. The application process weighs several different attributes including: how active a student is in regular project meetings, Spanish speaking abilities, CPR/First Aid certifications, whether the student shows initiative and is passionate about the project, and so on.
