A brief description of the sustainability-focused immersive program(s) offered by the institution:
Indiana University offers many partnership programs with countries overseas that incorporate semester abroad experiences, or a split class where half the term is held at IU and the other half in a chosen country.

Many of these courses can be found via the IES Abroad website when searching for "sustainability": https://www.iesabroad.org/programs

Examples of partnership programs that are sustainability-focused include:
an Environmental Studies and Sustainability program in Freiburg, Germany (http://www.iesabroad.org/study-abroad/programs/freiburg-environmental-studies-sustainability) and a Business, Sustainability, and Immigration program in Nice, France (https://www.iesabroad.org/programs/nice-business-sustainability-immigration).

Additionally, many IU Alternative Spring Break experiences focus on sustainability themes.
