Sustainability

In both its academic offerings and its campus engagement, Indiana University—Purdue University Indianapolis excels in sustainability leadership. IUPUI’s Office of Sustainability spearheads creative, student-driven environmental initiatives in nearly every area. Mixed recycling containers are widely available across campus, and students grow herbs and vegetables in two campus organic gardens that supply campus dining, as well as the anti-hunger Campus Kitchens Project. Students can get around campus using a number of green transportation options: discounted bus passes, Zipcar, bike resources, and carpools. The Eugene and Marilyn Glick Eye Institute is the first LEED Gold-certified building at IUPUI, and the university has expressed a commitment to achieving LEED Silver certification for new buildings. In addition, the campus’s Business and School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA) building recently installed solar panels on its roof. SPEA serves as an epicenter for IUPUI’s ongoing sustainability studies: within that school, undergraduates may major in sustainable management and policy, which “focuses on the development and implementation of policies” that make a positive environmental impact. Alternatively, students can choose sustainability-oriented majors in engineering, environmental science, environmental health science, geography, geology, or energy engineering. IUPUI students enjoy many opportunities to get their hands dirty through the Student Sustainability Council, Developing IUPUI Gardens Sustainably (DIGS), a number of collaborative committees on trees, waste, water, public health, and transportation, and the IUPUI Sustainability Steering Committee’s Green Teams for student-led environmental action.
