Environmental Quality and Land Use
IU Northwest is dedicated to protecting and improving the quality of the air, land, and water resources of Northwest Indiana. Our urban campus faces the same challenges to surrounding communities; the urban heat island effect, degraded air and land quality, and localized flooding.
Sustainability at IU Northwest focuses on harnessing the expertise of our campus community to research issues and engage through innovative solutions and problem-solving.
IU Northwest is taking action here on campus and in surrounding communities to restore natural ecosystems, improve environmental quality, and mitigate and adapt to the impacts of a changing climate.
