Study Abroad

Broaden your perspective to sustainability practices around the world

Sustainability is a global imperative. The environmental, social and economic challenges faced around the world are vastly varying, relying heavily upon geopolitical landscapes and resulting in a multitude of sustainability needs. 

IUPUI offers study abroad courses that expose student to the sustainability challenges of other nations. You can earn course credits and gain enriching, once in a lifetime experiences learning about the sustainability practices employed around the world. 

My time in Costa Rica was life changing. I realized how much we take for granted; resources, people, life in general.

Study Abroad through the lens of the UN Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nations (UN), describes the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as “the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.” The 17 interconnected goals address many global challenges, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. The UN has called for all goals to be achieved by 2030.

The IUPUI Study Abroad Office and our campus partners are fully committed to help achieve these goals. Through IUPUI's study abroad programming we strive to engage, educate, and create global citizens who are part of the solution to achieve the SDGs for our shared world.

The IUPUI Office of International Affairs has created a master list of study abroad opportunities sorted by each UN SDG.
