Help support our innovative campus greening programs! Learn how our students receive access to world-class faculty and research—giving them the opportunity to be a catalyst for change in sustainability.
Your gift today helps support our innovative programs. One of our newer programs, with amazing results, is our 2020 Sustainability Scholars Program. The goal of this opportunity is to provide an immersive, high-quality research experience for approximately 15 freshman and sophomores in the area of sustainability and environmental improvement. The practical experience they receive is valued by employers and graduate schools, as they receive support in refining their interests and building a sustainability portfolio—while also growing critical thinking and analytical skills. Through this unique program, scholars have worked closely on projects that have included issues related to food insecurity, transportation alternatives, watershed protection, energy policy, and the list goes on.
Along with the 2020 Scholars, we have also supported over 200 interns. These interns are working to redefine sustainability on campus through intensive working groups. Our students work with faculty and staff to develop lasting programs that make our campus a better place while also receiving the opportunity to present their culminating work at an annual symposium dedicated to sustainability.
Since our inception we’ve supported countless programs to make campus more sustainable—such as our bi-annual Energy Challenge, which has conserved over 16.7 million gallons of water and saved IU more than $2 million in utility bills. We’ve helped fund projects like the new Campus Farm and Heritage Trail. Please help us continue to support these programs and others by donating to our Bloomington Sustainability Fund.
