Our History

Discoveries International was established in 1978, in a small room inside Dudley Birder Hall. The organization began when Norbertines  brought back alpaca-knit sweaters from Peru to St. Norbert College. With demand, the concept grew into a business which is now located inside of Todd Wehr Hall. 


Discoveries International is a student-run, non-profit retail organization that imports fair trade, hand-crafted items from developing countries. The proceeds from the sales of these products are donated to designated charitable organizations each year. This year, we chose Doctors without Borders, Feed My Starving Children, and Zambia Project.
