All new building and renovation projects must embrace sustainable design and building practices. Indiana University is committed to achieving LEED® Gold certification for all projects as defined by the United States Green Building Council, replacing an earlier standard of LEED Silver, which had been established in 2010.
As stated in the 2014 Strategic Plan:
"IU has also become a leader in high quality environmentally conscious design, and leads the Big Ten in LEED-certified green buildings with twelve certified to date, including four at the gold level (platinum is the highest certification). This strategy pays dividends for the life of each building in terms of occupant health and productivity, resource efficiency, life cycle cost savings, and retention of human capital" and includes in the Action Items that IU will "Certify all major new buildings with the LEED Green Building Certification System and elevate the minimum certification level to Gold."
Some (but not all) of IUB's LEED projects are showcased here: http://sustain.indiana.edu/programs/green-building/green-building-projects/projects-index.php
The University Director of Sustainability (architect and LEED AP) sits in as required on construction meetings where LEED compliance is discussed to assist with successful certification. Many LEED credits have been built into building standards. LEED Gold Certification is required on all major new buildings and renovations (as noted in the IU Strategic Plan, page 42).
