A brief description of how sustainability is included prominently in new student orientation:

At the beginning of each academic year, IUPUI hosts Involvement Expo, which is a campus-wide event showcasing programming on campus. IUPUI Sustainability, Campus Kitchen at IUPUI, Energy Club, Student Sustainability Council, IUPUI Cycling Club, and others are present yearly.

Campus Ambassadors, which provide campus tours to visiting and incoming students, receive training in campus sustainability principles, which are to shared on their provided tours.

Additionally, there are sustainability-specific events hosed throughout the year that give students a chance to interact with both IUPUI and local organizations focused on sustainability . This is hosted by the IUPUI Office of Sustainability and the Student Sustainability Council who engage new and returning IUPUI students in exploring the impact of sustainability efforts across campus while also piquing their interest in sustainability studies and careers. Green representatives featured at the recent fair included SustainIndy, IndyGo, the IUPUI School of Public and Environmental Affairs, Developing IUPUI Gardens Sustainably, and the Richard G. Lugar Center for Renewable Energy—just to name a few.
