Focus Areas

Environmental Quality

This topic area explores how we can utilize resources such as air, land, and water in ways that are mutually beneficial to the environment and population.  Given the limited nature of these resources, it is imperative that we care for them in a way that ensures their longevity, while meeting the present needs of the community. Based in both operations and academics, this area implements initiatives aimed at improving the current and future health of both the IU community and environment. Collaborative research and implementation projects have helped IU assess the overall quality of our campus resources and potential impacts on campus well being.
