Projects supporting this theme promote pride and engagement through activities and enhancements to IUPUI’s physical space, such as improving campus navigation on and off campus, developing campus art fund, and identifying ways for students to have more interactions with faculty, staff, and administrators.
Designing an Accessible, Inspiring Urban Campus
Projects and Innovators
- Discovering and Making Public Art at IUPUI
This project will expand access to IUPUI public art collections. It includes the development of a web-based app that will provide digital curated walking tours and descriptions of art around campus. It also will feature two residencies--each a month long--that will bring two artists to IUPUI to create two site-specific public artworks for campus. Finally, it will focus on public art created by Herron students.

- Sustainability in the IUPUI Experience
This project addresses environmental issues on campus. Infusing sustainability into the student experience, it will strengthen the sense of connectedness to the IUPUI, community, and global environments. It will also focus on how to live a sustainable lifestyle, including waste diversion, water use reduction, and energy conservation. Finally, the project will assess current outdoor waste bins – including type, aesthetics, placement, and usage – and work with the University Architect's Office to identify and propose a new outdoor waste bin standard in order to provide uniform trash and recycling infrastructure across all of IUPUI’s campus.
