The new year has brought some of the coldest weather in over three
years. How can we keep where we live warm without consuming more
energy than necessary? Tour E-House, the new headquarters of the IU
Office of Sustainability, to learn what IU did to maximize energy
efficiency in a house built in the 1930s and the creative ways IU is
trying to conserve energy on campus and help us understand, wherever we
live, what can be done both to reduce energy use and save money!
The Office of Sustainability notes, "E-House was conceived as a place
where campus and community groups can meet, learn, plan, and implement
sustainability initiatives. . . . The E in E-House refers to the
E-words we use every day in the Office of Sustainability: Energy,
Environment, Equity, Economics, and Education, but we also intend for it
to stand for Example. We hope the building will serve as a model of a
new approach to energy and the built environment on our campus and in
Following the tour, you will also learn about summer
sustainability internship opportunities with the IUOS and how you can
get more involved with its projects, including greening the athletics
department; events and initiatives focused on local food, sustainable
food, and campus gardens; a bicycle master plan; energy conservation in
residence halls, etc. This summer's program will run from May 13 to
August 2, 2013, and interns are expected to work approximately 20
hours/week in addition to attending a weekly seminar. Visit http://sustain.indiana.edu for
