Mission + Vision


IUPUI Sustainability seeks to be recognized as a national leader in urban sustainability, and known for its academic, research, and community outreach efforts that support student success and the well-being of citizens of Indianapolis, the state of Indiana, and beyond.  

Taking steps as individuals makes an impact—recycling, reducing our carbon footprint, controlling vehicle emissions. Multiply that by thousands to see the impact across IUPUI and by millions to see the impact across central Indiana.
