Discover opportunities for research, mentorship, and teaching
- Teach at the IURTP
- Mentor a 2020 Sustainability Scholar
The 2020 Sustainability Scholars Program gives select undergraduates the opportunity to conduct sustainability research for one year alongside an IU faculty member. 2020 Mentors are also offered $500 towards their research.
- Research Outreach through IPE and IURTP
Consider how your research efforts and related outreach might be accomplished by working with the IPE or the IURTP. For example, faculty have partnered with us to build meaningful outreach efforts into their grant proposals, through substantive programming we offer to IU students, K-12 students, and the larger Bloomington and Indiana community.
- Sustainability Community of Practice
Sustainability requires a transdisciplinary approach, linking theories and methods to disparate fields and finding effective teaching mechanisms for students with diverse backgrounds and capabilities. This program aims to create a campus-based community network of sustainability faculty who teach, or are interested in teaching, sustainability related courses and share a common language and understanding of core sustainability concepts. This program is designed to facilitate cross-department interaction through discussions of research-based sustainability learning principles.
- Sustainability Course Development Fellowships
Together with the IU Office of Sustainability, and support from the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education, Sustainability Course Development Fellowships support faculty member efforts to enhance teaching sustainability and environmental literacy on the IU Bloomington campus. Innovative approaches to instruction of complex, interdisciplinary topics at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and courses that may contribute to the newly developed degree in Environmental and Sustainability Studies, are given high priority for support.
