"I want to show people the power in seeing possibility as something that we can create. I truly believe that the number of ways in which we can help those most in need, in our own communities and around the world, are endless."Skyler Szerszen ’21

Skyler Szerszen ’21, a mechanical engineering major and president for the University of New Haven’s chapter of Engineers Without Borders (EWB), is working with fellow club members to advance clean water solutions in rural Ecuador by creating and testing biosand filters. Once they receive approval from the national offices of EWB-USA in 2020, students will travel to Ecuador to teach local community leaders how to construct the filters.

Celebrating What it Takes to be a Charger

The spotlights featured in this special campaign edition of the University of New Haven Alumni Magazine showcase something fundamental that our students, faculty, alumni, and friends have in common: selflessness and a desire to give back to the world for the opportunities given to them. The Charger Challenge was inspired by individuals like these who have committed themselves to continuing an incredible momentum into a future that beckons with possibility and the promise of imagination, innovation, and impact.
