Internship Program in Sustainability


Summer 2014 Sustainability Internship Symposium

On Friday, August 1nd from 11:30 AM to 2 PM in the Neal Marshall Black Culture Center Grand Hall we'll celebrate the work of our 2014 summer sustainability interns at the Summer Sustainability Internship Symposium. The symposium will feature the research projects of IU Bloomington's 2014 summer sustainability interns, including presentations, a poster session, and lunch featuring local food. There is no cost to attend.

As an official green event, the symposium is set up for minimal environmental impact. In addition to serving a seasonal and locally sourced vegetarian lunch, IUOS has worked with IMU Catering to make the event landfill free, meaning all meal components will be reused or recycled; this is also true for all promotion and decoration materials. Composting and recycling bins will be available, with no packaging headed to the landfill.

Additionally, attendees are encouraged to walk, ride the bus, or bike to the Neal Marshall Black Culture Center Grand Hall for the event. To find out which bus route works best for you, please visit IU Campus Bus or Bloomington Transit
