Discover opportunities for research, mentorship, and teaching
The IU Research and Teaching Preserve Field Lab is a five-minute drive from campus, and features a modular classroom with UITS technology as well as field and laboratory space, equipment, and supplies. The property is equipped to host courses across campus; past courses include Field and Laboratory Ecology, Biodiversity, Perceiving Beauty through Attentiveness, and Wilderness Survival.
Interested in teaching here?
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.
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.
Do you have an idea?
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.
