Sustainability Showcase White Papers:
These projects were developed by Sustainability Studies students from the undergraduate and graduate courses in conjunction with engineering students from Purdue Polytechnic. They were designed around three topic areas that received the most feedback from campus and community surveys about what should be included in the Sustainability Showcase on the IU South Bend campus. The topics were: Renewables, Alternative Transportation, and a Greenhouse. The three students groups were asked to consider the following questions:
- How can we install your team's item on campus in the Showcase area? Should we?
- Will it help move us where we want to go? (at scale sustainability installations that will fit in a city, on an average city lot)
- What design will work best? Are there alternative options that could be considered?
- What will it cost, what is the
cost benefitanalysis, and will it be a good return on investment?
