BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Indiana University Bloomington will join universities and colleges across the nation this Wednesday (Oct. 26) in celebrating Campus Sustainability Day, an event that was created in 2003 to draw attention to the growing momentum of sustainability initiatives in institutions of higher education.

"I hope everyone will join us as we celebrate the work of hundreds of student, faculty and staff volunteers who strive to make our campus and community thrive with a higher quality of life and lower environmental impact," said Director of Sustainability Bill Brown. "Campus Sustainability Day will give people multiple opportunities to become a part of this growing effort and personally commit to being part of the solution."

In partnership with the Bloomington Professional Council (BPC) and the Student Sustainability Council (SSC), the Office of Sustainability (IUOS) has developed activities and events to support students, faculty and staff members in creating an environmentally, socially and economically healthy campus community.

Opportunities to make personal commitments to live, learn and work more sustainably include:
