Humanitarian-Focused Engineering in the US

We have so many problems in this country that are not addressed humanitarian-focused engineering should start here, in this country. I am always amazed that problems in the US are overlooked to help the survival of people in other countries.  I am an engineer and I have seen the homeless people and families in our inner cities.  I am also amazed when our universities sit in the middle of "bad" neighborhoods.  It doesn't make any sense to me, that these venerable academic institutions are not partnering with their communities to make our world a better place in our own backyards.
