The State Sustainability Index Website

Welcome to the State Sustainability Index Website. Over several semesters, separate groups of Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs graduate students will work with the Hoosier Environmental Council to produce a holistic state level sustainability index. This website will be the home for our findings, work, reports, and data sets.
