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 Sustain IU, with 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.
- Sustainability Research Development Grants
Together with Sustain IU, this award program is designed to support collaborative, interdisciplinary efforts of students to develop new, externally-funded research related to sustainability. Successful proposals have clearly stated goals and objectives, employ appropriate methods and tools, and address sustainability challenges, such as resource stewardship, assessment and mitigation of environmental impacts caused by human activity, and institutional and societal responses to ecological change. If you mentor a student who is looking for funding for their sustainability-related project, the SRDG program may be a good fit for them.
