Office of Sustainability logo.


The IUPUI Office of Sustainability strives to model wise stewardship of environmental resources across an array of campus decisions and activities. Guided by the goals of "conservation, protection, and enhancement of natural resources," the Office of Sustainability seeks to advance green initiatives through collaboration with administrators, educators, stakeholders, and constituents within the IUPUI community. The interdependence of humans and the environment is emphasized through committee work, course curriculum, and civic engagement each of which addresses specific aspects of practicing sustainability in both the present and future.

IUPUI Sustainability Leadership


"As stewards of  the IUPUI campus and of all its resources, we recognize the interdependence of humans with the environment.  We must apply thoughtful and creative planning to achieve a thriving campus community built on the principles of sustainability.  We must foster conservation, protection and enhancement of natural resources through campus policy and personal behavior.  We must promote a common agenda for IUPUI as a green campus.  We must preserve and enhance the quality of life for our campus community and future generations in ways that enhance teaching and learning, research, civic engagement and administrative practices."
