Sustainability at IUPUI

Now seeking partners for 2018

We are excited to announce the Indiana Sustainability Development Program's pilot year was so successful, we are expanding the number of opportunities and partner slots in 2018.

We are currently seeking partners to host interns for summer 2018. If your organization is interested in mentoring a highly skilled IU or IUPUI student this summer from any academic discipline, please fill out this form.

Expanding careers in sustainability

Our aim is to:

  • Develop a statewide network of sustainability professionals in the corporate, nonprofit, government, and higher education sectors
  • Learn how to best prepare students for sustainability careers by listening to industry professionals
  • Train and place interns in sustainability-focused positions through partnership development and an intensive bootcamp
  • Build the state of Indiana’s sustainability workforce capacity by retaining skilled talent through employment and internship opportunities

How to get involved

Join our sustainability network

Help us build a network of sustainability professionals who can mentor students, connect with each other and share success and expertise across all employment sectors. Our growing network promises to enhance the sustainability work in Indiana now and in the future.

Host an extern this summer

Our program has already identified several experiential opportunities this summer and we’ve got room for more. We will identify and place an extern with your organization and provide support and evaluation throughout the summer. Funding is available to help organizations wishing to participate that have not budgeted for an extern in summer 2018.

Share your expertise

We are coordinating an intensive bootcamp for students headed to sustainability-focused internships throughout the state. We are looking for professionals to participate in roundtables, presentations and the development of real-world problem solving skills. This workshop will be held May 14-18, 2018.
