Hoosier-To-Hoosier Community Sale A Success

Hoosier to
Arbor DayHoosier Community Sale, a new initiative to promote the reuse of quality furniture and household items donated by Indiana University students during move-out from residence halls, Greek houses, and off-campus housing, raised over $10,000 Saturday, Aug. 21,  at Memorial Stadium for local charitable organizations.

The H2H Community Sale also put tons of useful items back into the hands of people who could use them instead of potentially ending up in the landfill. Some of the items were donated directly to area aid agencies and
100 percent of the cash proceeds went to local chapters of United Way and Habitat for Humanity. Attendees of the sale also had the opportunity to donate non-perishable food items to Hoosier Hills Food Bank, which had several collection barrels at the stadium on the day of the sale.

The idea for the sale was conceived by IU Sustainability Intern, John Patishnock, who was mentored by Steve Akers and Jacqui Bauer. The inaugural H2H Community Sale was a community partnership among United Way of Monroe County, Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County, the City of Bloomington, IU Athletics, and IU Residential Programs and Services.
IU Athletics hoping changes draw bigger crowds
Indiana athletic director Fred Glass was quoted in a recent AP News story about his strategies to fill the stands at Memorial Stadium.

Among his many creative ideas was one we hope all fans get excited about: "to make  IU Athletics the greenest in the Big Ten. He's putting recycling bins throughout the stadium, using only Indiana-based popcorn and biodegradable corn-based utensils at concession stands and a valet service for fans who ride bikes to games." (See the related event volunteer information below. Students can sign up to be Greening Cream and Crimson volunteers and get free food, t-shirts and admission to the game.)

Events coming together for Indiana University's fall semester

A public talk by New York Times columnist Thomas L. Friedman, best-selling author of The World is Flat and Flat, Hot and Crowded; an exhibit of the work of renowned nature photographer Subhankar Banerjee; a screening and discussion of Al Gore's Oscar-winning film An Inconvenient Truth -- the calendar is filling up for the College's of Arts and Science's fall Themester: "sustain·ability: Thriving on a Small Planet."
Sanya CarleyEnergy-based economic development: A fad or here to stay?
More than $50 billion in federal stimulus funds were allocated to support energy technology innovation, green jobs and low-income energy efficiency assistance programs.
"Early reports indicate the funding has, in some cases, outpaced the ability of the agencies to implement their most shovel-ready projects," said Sanya Carley, assistant professor in the Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs and co-author of "Energy-Based Economic Development," a forthcoming article in Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews.
Instructors revise courses to teach sustainability

On August 20th, twenty-two faculty, librarians, staff and associate instructors participated in the College of Arts and Sciences free Teaching and Learning Institute to brainstorm ways to incorporate interactive activities on diverse sustainability issues into their courses, in preparation for IU's Fall 2010 Themester "sustain.ability: Thriving on a Small Planet".  
Coming from chemistry, fine arts, biology, human biology, apparel and merchandising, history and philosophy of science, among other departments, workshop participants considered various ways to engage with and contribute to what is arguably the central issue of our time: the promotion of human flourishing withing ecological limits. The discussion began with the following charge:
Sustainability reconciles environmental, economic, and social concerns, permitting human energy and resource use in a manner that is socially equitable and respectful of the regenerative and assimilative limits of the biosphere, thus meeting present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
How does this definition of sustainability resonate with your understanding of it? How do you (or how does your discipline) already teach sustainability? Alternatively, what does your discipline contribute to our understanding of sustainability?

Facilitated by Lisa Kurz (Campus Instructional Consulting), Heather Reynolds (Biology), and Jennifer Robinson (Communication and Culture), the interactive workshop focused on revising new and existing courses to incorporate active learning and generate one or more Themester activities into fall syllabi. Workshop participants identified sustainability-related learning goals and used the fall's impressive offerings on sustainability -- lectures, exhibits, performances, readings, and other events -- to meet those goals. Workshop participants also received a preview of student grant and prize opportunities.
The workshop materials are available at http://themester.indiana.edu/events/TeachingLearningInstitute.shtml.

Featured Sustainability Catalysts
Steve Akers, Assistant Director of Environmental Operations (RPS)
Jacqui Bauer, City of Bloomington Sustainability Coordinator
John Patishnock, IUOS H2H Intern
With just a week and a half after the highly successful Hoosier to Hoosier Community Sale on August 21st, we're sure there are three people still catching up on sleep.  The Office of Sustainability and the Campus Sustainability Advisory Board would like to recognize the remarkable effort of these three individuals, without whom H2H would not have been possible. Assistant Director of Environmental Operations Steve Akers, City of Bloomington Sustainability Coordinator Jacqui Bauer, and IUOS Sustainability Intern John Patishnock worked tirelessly during the spring semester and throughout the summer to ensure this new program met its strategic goals of diverting reusable items from the landfill and educating students about the importance of resource reduction and reuse.  They have already begun evaluating 2010 programming to improve on the 2011 sale. 

Jacqui, Steve, and John, thank you for your dedication to our students, community and environment. 
Green Team Update
Cyberinfrastructure Building Living Green Team
If you passed the east side of campus this summer, you probably noticed the new Cyberinfrastructure Building under construction on the corner of Tenth Street and the 45/46 Bypass.
The Cyberinfrastructure Building (CIB) is the future home of University Information Technology Services (UITS), and will bring together over 600 IT staff who currently work in multiple locations across campus. The CIB is designed to visually represent IU's cutting-edge technology environment and its commitment to IT innovation in service of the university's teaching, learning, and research missions.
The new building offers many opportunities to address issues related to working in an open, collaborative, foward-looking workspace. Project coordinators have engaged UITS staff and volunteers to help envision, plan, and implement innovative ways of working within this new space. Teams are addressing such issues as security, living in community, transportation, and healthy living. One such group, the Living Green Team, is turning its passion for sustainable practices into opportunities to encourage "green" through design and behavior change. 
Susan Coleman Morse"We were excited to be invited to participate in the development of the CIB. While many of the big decisions, such as energy systems and site plans were determined at a high level, there are many tangible things we can address that will have an impact on the carbon footprint of the building," shared Living Green co-chair Susan Coleman Morse. "One of our short-term goals is to monitor current practices, such as recycling and energy consumption. Partnering with the CIB communications team, we will develop materials on reduction, then monitor change over the next few quarters. Our goal is to establish patterns of practice and provide input into policies and purchases prior to moving into the new building."
The CIB Living Green Team is represented in the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification meetings along with architects, contractors, and engineers. Coleman Morse continued, "It is exciting to see IU approaching this space in a  new manner. I am not aware of a past building project that has attracted as much staff feedback from all levels of the organization. This project has put us in contact with people at UITS and on campus we otherwise would not have encountered. For example, members of our team met with the University Architect's Office to review the landscaping plan for the site. It was refreshing to hear the words 'bioswale' and 'native plantings' in these conversations! After move-in, our team will host tours and educational opportunities for the larger community. Even these activities help support our goal of a minimum LEED silver rating."
The Cyberinfrastructure Building is slated to open in fall 2011.
IUOS Announces New Academic Year Internships
Applications due by Wednesday, September 15th, 5:00 PM
Visit http://www.iu.edu/~sustain/internships/ to apply beginning Wednesday, September 1st, 12:00 PM

Continuing the tradition of the Indiana University Task Force on Sustainability, the Office of Sustainability (IUOS) addresses issues of environmental, economic and social sustainability in campus operations, academic programs, and university-community relations.  This academic year, we are seeking another group of outstanding undergraduate and graduate students dedicated to advancing sustainability at Indiana University Bloomington.
The IUB Academic Year Internship Program in Sustainability will run from October through April. Funding is available to support twelve new sustainability-related internships.  Four of these interns will join four continuing interns, working on ongoing IUOS projects.  The other eight will join two other continuing interns, working collaboratively with IUOS and the Campus Sustainability Advisory Board on projects designed to meet the strategic goals of our seven working groups.  Students will be expected to work approximately ten to fifteen hours per week over the course of the academic year and participate seminar in sustainability.  Student interns and their mentors will have discretion in setting their work schedules to accommodate vacation and other commitments.  Graduate students will be paid $11.00/hour and undergraduate interns $9.00/hour.

IUOS will begin accepting applications at 12:00 PM on Wednesday, September 1.  Applications can be submitted online at: http://www.iu.edu/~sustain/internships/. The online application and recommendation letters must be received by 5:00 PM, Wednesday, September 15th, 2010.  General information about the IUB Sustainability Program can be found at http://www.indiana.edu/~sustain.

Questions regarding internships or the application process can also be directed to Emilie Rex at ekrex@indiana.edu.


1.     Campus Sustainability Metrics

In January of this year, the Association for Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) released the first official version of its Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System (STARS), a program aimed at assessing the sustainability of colleges and universities through a number of operational and academically- based metrics.  Indiana University is a Charter Participant in this effort.  This intern will continue the academic year and summer interns' efforts, expanding the groundwork for assessing IU's status and improving its ranking in these areas by exploring more accurate and proactive reporting through research and database development.  This intern will also investigate the development of additional campus specific metrics for measuring sustainability and coordinate with other efforts to develop a comprehensive campus sustainability dashboard. 


2.     Green Teams

Informal groups of students, faculty and staff are emerging in departments and schools across campus to discuss their roles in greening IU's office, learning and living spaces. Because each of these groups represents a unique set of perspectives, interests and skills, the need for communication and resource sharing is paramount.  This intern will: (1) implement the newly developed "green certification" program, (2) analyze green team interviews to develop materials and resources to help encourage the initiation of new green teams in various campus departments and organizations, (3) coordinate a brown-bag series to facilitate communication between green teams and encourage new membership, and (4) collaborate with green teams to develop Office resources, suggested campus-wide policy documents, and (possibly) funding sources for the groups.


3.     Green Events

The hundreds of events occurring monthly across the IUB campus contribute significantly to our collective carbon, waste and water footprints.  This intern will develop and execute an implementation plan for green events at IUB based on the best practices guide and certification system created by the summer intern.  Additionally, the intern will work with students to develop a green events consultancy corps aimed at providing student, faculty and staff with expertise on green event planning.  


4.     First Year Experience

The Office of First Year Experience Programs (FYE) and Residential Program Services (RPS) serve nearly 8,000 new students each year.  Both organizations are working hard to integrate sustainability into their operations and programming.  This intern will continue the work of the academic year and summer intern by collaborating with: (1) FYE to create a sustainability assessment and improve on existing sustainability initiatives, (2) RPS to implement the new Green Dorm Room Certification Pilot Program, and (3) the Residence Hall Association and Resident Advisors to create student centered programming focusing on sustainability. 



5.     Sustainability Academic Programs and Research Clearinghouse

Faculty, staff and students at IU conduct a considerable amount of research related to sustainability both domestically and internationally.  There are also many sustainability related courses and co-curricular activities on campus.  IU faces a considerable challenge in disseminating these activities beyond the campus.  This intern will assist the Office of Sustainability Academic Initiatives Working Group in the development of a website summarizing sustainability related research on campus, and analysis of IU courses across departments and schools to assess their connections to sustainability issues.  This intern will work with faculty to digest their research to short summaries to be posted on the web.  The intern will also assist in collating information for the Office of Sustainability for the submission of IU's portfolio to the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education.


6.     Strategic Land Management

In March of 2010, the President released the Campus Master Plan for Indiana University Bloomington.  The document outlines a thirty-year plan for building and spatial maintenance, renovation and construction, including an ambitious set of goals for sustainable land use.  This intern will review and analyze the document and will assist in prioritizing these initiatives for the purpose of creating a strategic plan for environmental quality and land management.  



7.     Feasibility of Edible Landscaping and Gardens on Campus

As interest in food and agriculture grows on campus, the Food Working Group is investigating possible locations suitable for edible landscaping and community gardens.  This intern would be collaborating and coordinating with key stakeholders on campus to assess the feasibility of edible plant projects, including review of relevant past projects, interviews with previous project leaders, and potential incorporation of this information into a new project proposal under the guidance of the working group.   



8.     Hoosier to Hoosier Community Sale

This year's Hoosier to Hoosier Community Sale effort filled the west concourse of Memorial Stadium with tons of reusable items collected from IUB residence halls, Greek houses and off campus properties.  The sale of these items back to the community netted $10,500 for United Way, Habitat for Humanity and future sale efforts.  This internship will build on the previous academic year and summer intern's work, with the goals of: (1) capturing more reusable items before they enter the waste stream, and (2) increasing the educational nature of the project through the integration of service learning classes and student organization programming.  



9.     E-waste Coordination

Over the last two years, Indiana University, in partnership with Apple, Inc. has collected over 1.4 million pounds of electronic waste, preventing bulk sale of these goods into overseas markets and risk of environmental contamination from improper disposal.  The intern will be responsible for planning this 2011 Electronic Waste Collection Days event, communicating with multiple stakeholders including coordinating other IU campuses, departments across campus, residence hall managers, and community and corporate partners, and working on implementation and reporting on the event.


10.  Document Management and Paper Reduction

This intern will assess paper usage of various departments and schools on the IUB campus and determine what alternatives may be available for reduction in the use of virgin paper.  This intern will also investigate digital alternatives to paper for class work, forms, mailings, as well as document storage, retrieval and retention.  The intern will analyze and report on other available technologies and options to reduce printing impacts, including duplex printing studies, print release stations, central departmental printers, user incentives and other strategies that have been successful at IU and elsewhere.



11.  Transportation Infrastructure Funding

Currently there is no staff person responsible for monitoring transportation grant announcements and preparing grant applications for IUB.  This intern would be established to scan grant announcements and prepare grant applications as directed.  The intern would monitor grant announcements from US Department of Transportation, including modal administrations such as the Federal Transit Administration, the Federal Highway Administration, etc.   Special attention will be paid to grant announcements for transportation enhancement projects for pedestrian and bicycle projects. 


12.  Parking Demand Economics

The supply and cost of parking is a significant contributor to a person's transportation mode choice.   Currently, the cost of parking structures is not covered by permit fees.  It must be subsidized by parking violation revenue.  Travel Demand Management programs must have a strong understanding of parking supply, demand and costs to be effective.  A study of similar institutions' parking permit fees and revenues methods and an economic analysis of parking at IU would be enormously valuable.  This intern would conduct a study investigating parking policy options, parking elasticities, parking cash-out, and parking land capital.

Tending a Difficult Hope: A Relational work by Leah Gauthier 
Oct 22 - Nov 19, 2010 
Leah GauthierThe School of Fine Arts (SoFA) Gallery at Indiana University is pleased to announce Tending a Difficult Hope, a two-component exhibition by Leah Gauthier. This exhibition will open Friday, October 22 and continue through Friday, November 19, 2010. An opening reception for the exhibition will be held on Friday, October 22, from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM at the SoFA Gallery. The Artist will give a lecture about her work on Friday, October 29, at 12:00 PM at the SoFA Gallery.
Tending a Difficult Hope is an installation and relational work that explores agricultural plant matter as sculptural material, sustainable solustions towards a healthy food supply, community building through growing and cooking food, and ways of re-incorporating agrarian sensibilities and simplicity into modern life. This exhibition has two components, an oudoor generative sculpture food garden and a sculptural installation at the SoFA Gallery.
The outdoor garden is comprised of heirloom (rare antique varieties with colorful histories, which have withstood the test of time and varied growing conditions, but are now endangered, due in good part to industrial agricultural practices) vegetables, grown from seed. The garden is located on teh IU campus near teh Bryan House and can be viewed over teh summare and fall. the gallery installation consists of more generative sculptures of rare food plants, teh preserved harvest, the fresh fall harvest, and a gathering area (long communal tables and a make-shift kitchen). During the opening, and at regular intervals spanning the duration of the exhibition the public is invited to cook and eat the harvest in the gathering area.
The program is supported by the College of Arts and Sciences Fall 2010 Themester, "sustain.ability: Thriving on a Small Planet". For more information on Themester events please visit http://themester.indiana.edu/.

From Brown to Green:
Summer 2010 Internship Symposium
by Bill Brown
In spite of the fact it was held on Friday the 13th and an estimated 17 to 21 million people suffer from friggatriskaidekaphobia, the Indiana Memorial Union Frangipani Room was full, as usual, for the Summer Sustainability Internship Symposium. Thanks to thorough planning by Emilie Rex, intern Anne Kostyo, and the IMU staff, the tables were beautifully decorated with native plant centerpieces and native seed favors and the meatless meal featured delicious local foods served with IMU flair.

I had the pleasure of introducing our guest speaker, Jacqui Bauer, Bloomington's new Sustainability Coordinator, former IUOS Resource Use and Recycling Working Group Co-Chair and current Campus Sustainability Advisory Board member. She is currently very active as a mentor for intern John Patishnock and a key member of the steering group that is implementing the first Hoosier-to-Hoosier Community Sale that John conceived.

Arbor Day
 Jacqui started her talk with an image of Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, one of the stars of the Jersey Shore MTV Reality Show. She was pleased that not many in the audience could recognize the star, since her point was that it was discouraging for her how much time Americans spend on vaporous reality TV, when we have more important and pressing issues to spend our time addressing. She recognized the Sustainability Interns as a source of hope and optimism about the future and she described the ways the Hoosier-to-Hoosier Community Sale was uniting campus and community in a worthwhile endeavor.

Assistant Director of Sustainability, Emilie Rex, introduced three Summer Sustainability Interns who gave 15-minute presentations of their high-impact internship projects. Anne Kostyo outlined her work on Green Events Coordination and described the potential for reducing the environmental impact of events through the publication of a Green Events Guide and the establishment of a voluntary online Green Events Rating System patterned after the USGBC LEED Green Building Certification system. She also recommended the establishment of a Green Events Consultancy through IUOS that would assist event planners in using these resources. Asked how the Symposium event would rate on her scale, Anne said it would be the highest level, Platinum, due to the meatless menu, reusable china and linen, locally-sourced food, walkable venue served by public transit, all condiments and beverages served in bulk, native living plant centerpieces and native wildflower seed favors, and a program printed on 100% recycled paper using vegetable inks on paper sized to eliminate waste - among other features.

Mckenzie Beverage spoke about the history of Energy Challenge and made the first public announcement of the first Fall Energy Challenge to begin this October 6th. In the most recent Energy Challenge completed in April, over 14,000 people participated in 11 residence halls, 26 Greek houses and 8 large academic buildings. Three four-week Energy Challenges to date have saved over 4.75 million gallons of water and 2.2 million kilowatt hours of electricity, preventing 3.5 million pounds of CO2 pollution from entering the atmosphere. With 11 new administrative and academic buildings added, the Fall Energy Challenge will include over a third of the 16 million square feet of building stock on campus. Mckenzie plans to develop a method to measure the persistence of learned conservation behavior through the year, which was impossible to do with the Spring Challenge that ended just as students prepare to leave campus.

Laura Nading described her efforts, in close collaboration with the Office of First Year Experience, to Integrate Sustainability into the First Year Experience. One of her mentors was Bob Rathburn, of the Office of First-Year Experience, who was assigned to integrate sustainability into First Year Experience in concert with Laura. She described how sustainability had been incorporated into New Student Orientation events to reduce waste and how a 4-page campus sustainability reader was provided to all incoming freshmen as a discussion piece. Laura described her work to establish a new IU Beginnings immersive experience centered on campus and community sustainability.  In addition, she is implementing a Model Green Dorm Room project and a Green Dorm Room Certification pilot project that will allow residence hall students to self-certify their rooms using an online system that will go live this semester.

Michael Hamburger, Co-Chair of the Campus Sustainability Advisory Board and former Co-Chair of the Indiana University Task Force on Campus Sustainability (in tandem with Paul Sullivan, in both roles), has been one of the foundational leaders of campus sustainability at Indiana University Bloomington, without whom our office would not exist.  He gave the final comments at the symposium, which is likely to be his last as a co-chair. He gave an account of the progress of the campus sustainability efforts over the past several years and gave a preview of Themester 2010: "sustain.ability - Thriving on a Small Planet," which left the audience, as usual, excited and encouraged about the future of Indiana University Campus Sustainability. Michael will be taking a sabbatical in 2011 and his shoes will be impossible to fill by any one human.  We all owe him our deepest gratitude for his heroic efforts to elevate campus sustainability at Indiana University.

Accompanied by desert, all 18 summer sustainability interns stood by their posters and welcomed questions from guests.

Arbor DayIn interviews I am often asked what is the best part of my job. I always answer it is working with sustainability interns. By nature of the competitiveness of these internships, they are among the best and brightest students on campus, but they have also proven to be among the most compassionate, persistent, innovative and creative people in this community. These young leaders can take an idea and turn it into reality in the span of an internship or two. As Jacqui Bauer pointed out, they are a great source of hope and optimism about our sustainable future.
