BICENTENNIAL STRATEGIC PLAN - INDIANA UNIVERSITY
Bicentennial Priority 8. Building for Excellence

IU has also become a leader in high-quality environmentally conscious design, and leads the Big Ten in LEED‐certified green buildings with twelve certified to date, including four at the gold level (platinum is the highest certification). This strategy pays dividends for the life of each building in terms of occupant health and productivity, resource efficiency, life cycle cost savings and retention of human capital.

Bicentennial Action Item #3
IU will implement plans to solidify IU’s Focus on efficient and environmentally conscious campus design and operation by:
a. Completing and implementing pedestrian, transportation, and bicycle sub-master plans on each campus.
b. Certifying all major new buildings with the LEED Green Building Certification System and elevate the minimum certification level to Gold.
c. Continuing to explore and research a variety of energy and utility supply and delivery options that reflect changes in economies, demand, and climate variables.
d. Achieving the goals for energy efficiency and emissions reductions
e. Increasing energy and utility system efficiency while reducing demand and consumption.

The measurable objectives, strategies and timeframes included in the Air and Climate plan(s):

IUPUI MASTER PLAN
IUPUI master plan recommends changes that would result in the following: The level and density of tree cover, the campus will reap numerous environmental benefits. Air pollution removal will increase from 19,720 pounds per year to 41,414 pounds per year. Carbon storage and sequestration will more than double, increasing from 9,333 total tons stored annually to 19,600 tons stored, and from 73 total tons sequestered annually to 153 total tons sequestered. Stormwater runoff will be reduced, decreasing the amount of silt and pollutants that enter into the Jordan River and Cascade Creek. In fact, doubling the tree canopy on campus will save $2.3 million that would be spent building alternatively necessary stormwater detention facilities.

Water Use Reduction Recommendations
If above recommendations are followed: Using wedge analyses similar to those discussed previously, the chart to the right represents the water use reduction potential associated with a series of proposed strategies. Wedges 1, 3, and 5 examine the impacts of conservation measures applied to new campus buildings, while wedges 2, 4 and 6 demonstrate the impacts from retrofitting existing campus buildings to include water conservation measures. If all of the measures from Wedges 1-6 are implemented, the strategies combined would result in a potable water savings of 187.6 million gallons a year. IUPUI would increase its building area by 50% but increase its potable water consumption by only 4%.

A brief description of the plan(s) to advance Diversity and Affordability:

IUPUI STRATEGIC PLAN
Strategic Goal 9: Promote an Inclusive Campus Climate
IUPUI will foster and promote an inclusive campus climate that seeks, values, and cultivates diversity in all of its forms by holding units accountable for achieving diversity goals; expanding our capacity to use data to enhance diversity efforts; ensuring that all students have opportunities to develop cross-cultural knowledge; and by continuing to diversify our student body, our faculty, and our staff.

As Indiana’s urban public higher education institution, IUPUI seeks, values, and cultivates diversity in all of its forms, and strives to provide an environment where every individual feels welcomed, valued, and supported to achieve his or her fullest potential. Our commitment to fostering and sustaining an inclusive campus climate for all students, faculty, and staff members begins with IUPUI’s leaders and permeates the entire campus. We have a strong track record of serving an array of students—high-ability, first-generation, veteran, returning adult, historically underrepresented, to name a few—and our success in effectively educating these diverse learners depends, to a great extent, on ensuring a similarly diverse faculty and staff and a student body
that reflects the communities we serve. We must also develop and expand curricular and cocurricular activities that foster inclusiveness, and ensure that our structures, policies, processes, and programs enable diverse people and perspectives to thrive.
