Earth Week 2011

There are several interesting events taking place on the IUB campus for Earth Week 2011 that are worth sharing with your colleagues. 

On Earth Day (April 22nd), the Indiana University Office of Sustainability is hosting the 2nd annual Academic Year Sustainability Internship Symposium.  The event will take place from 11:30 a.m.-2:00 p.m. at the Neal Marshall Grand Hall.  Join us for a great lunch and the opportunity to learn about the projects students have been working on over the course of the 2010-2011 academic year.  To register to attend this event go to the IUOS homepage and click on the “SustainabilityInternship Symposium” window.
