Overview: The Integrated Program in the Environment (IPE) at Indiana University, in partnership with Keep Indianapolis Beautiful (KIB) and IU's office of Community & School Partnerships, is excited to offer the fifth annual Summer Experience in Sustainability & the Environment (SESE) program.
This program is a 4-day, 3-night residential summer camp that introduces Indiana high school students to sustainability and the environment on IU's campus. Participants explore the environmental field through educational and recreational activities, and learn about college and career opportunities from current IU students, staff and faculty. Participants are housed on-campus, at Indiana University-Bloomington.
SESE represents a unique opportunity for students, particularly minority, low-income, LGBTQ+, and 1st generation college students, to explore the environmental field, learn about college, and become environmental leaders in their communities.
2020 Program Dates: Thursday, June 18th — Sunday, June 21st
Costs: There is NO COST for this program; students are expected to arrange their own transportation to the Indiana University-Bloomington campus at the start of the program (afternoon of June 18th) and back home after its conclusion (afternoon of June 21st).
Eligibility: Preference will be given to students who will be Juniors or Seniors by Fall 2020, underrepresented youth (including minority, low-income, LGBTQ+, and first generation college students), and those who exhibit intellectual merit.
