Higher Education Associations Sustainability Consortium (HEASC) The Higher Education Associations Sustainability Consortium is a network of higher education associations with a commitment to advancing sustainability both within their constituencies and within the system of higher education itself. The purpose of HEASC is to support its members' work in advancing sustainability by:
• Supporting each other's sustainability programming
• Meeting on a regular basis to share information and exchange ideas
• Engaging in joint projects as appropriate to each organization's mission
• Contracting the services of a coordinating agency to serve as a resource for participating associations

A brief summary of additional ways the institution collaborates with other campuses to advance sustainability :

IUPUI participates in the Coalition of Urban Serving Universities sustainability group. The Coalition of Urban Serving Universities (USU) is a network of public urban research universities that represents every region of our country. University presidents created the Coalition to leverage the intellectual capital and economic power of urban universities, thereby improving urban life and America's competitiveness in the global economy.

USU's members partner with cities and metropolitan regions to prompt transformative investment in these urban areas to:
• Develop human capital and create a workforce ready to compete in the new economy of the 21st century,
• Revitalize neighborhoods and increase economic development, and
• Reduce health disparities and improve community health.

IUPUI participates in the Big Ten and Friends Environmental Stewardship Group. The Big Ten and Friends Environmental Group began in 2009 as a result of the Big Ten Financial Officers meeting to identify and plan for long-term issues of environmental stewardship. http://greenbigten.msu.edu/schools.html
