Sustain IU seeks to empower staff, faculty and students to ensure a lasting positive impact. With a mission to identify and promote sustainable solutions that reduce environmental impacts while supporting an equitable and prosperous IU, now and into the future—we’re proof that every Hoosier plays a role in creating a lasting legacy.
By transforming our university into a living lab, we are testing innovative solutions in our own backyard, and creating a living legacy rooted in diverse partnerships to develop bold solutions for the classroom, the campus, and the community. Together we can sustain IU!
…our precious islands of green and serenity—our most important physical asset, transcending even classrooms, libraries, and laboratories in their ability to inspire students to dream long dreams of future usefulness and achievement…Herman B Wells, 1962
Sustainability is supported throughout Indiana University by a collaborative network with focused initiatives supporting the IU Bicentennial Strategic Plan Core Value: Sustainability, stewardship and accountability for the natural, human, and economic resources and relationships entrusted to IU. The notion of a safe, vibrant, and healthy community is paramount, and it is characterized by a culture of care that is embodied by our students, staff, and faculty.
