Wisconsin Without Borders

A CUE partner by virtue of our relationship with the Global Health Institute (GHI), WWB is co-chaired by Lori DiPrete Brown and Beth Tryon. WWB is the brainchild of the late Peter Bosscher, an engineering professor who worked and did research in countries such as Uganda and wondered how to maximize impact of service to those developing communities. The premise of WWB is that if the academy works across disciplines, geographic boundaries, and in the same philosophy of mutual respect as a Science Shop, more issues can be addressed efficiently for faster progress.

WWB focuses primarily on credit-bearing service-learning activities for undergraduates, graduate and professional students, with mentorship from faculty, researchers and community members. It employs principles of community based research and action and provides a conceptual framework that aims to foster synergy among existing campus programs, student organizations and community partners.
