Civil and Environmental Engineers and Earth Scientists have a long tradition of altruism, making this world a better place, and helping our fellow man. At Notre Dame, our students are deeply involved in a variety of organizations that are making a difference. Organizations and projects include Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI) Outreach. American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Outreach, ND SEED, Engineers without Borders (EWB), and work in Haiti. Many of our students continue their service work after graduation through organizations such at the Peace Corps or Teach for America.
