With the designation, IU joins an elite group of 222 colleges and universities in 47 states and the District of Columbia that are taking action to address the health and environmental challenges facing America by creating campuses that are more welcoming to faculty, staff, and students who bike.
Colleges and universities applying for the designation are reviewed holistically to determine an institution’s work to promote bicycling in the categories of engineering, education, encouragement, evaluation, and equity.
“IU has worked hard to improve bicycling on campus for students, faculty, and staff, by encouraging them to think about bicycling not just for recreation but also for transportation,” said Anna Dragovich, IU Bloomington’s Transportation Demand Management Coordinator, and Bicycle Manager. “Even though there’s still more work to do, it feels good to celebrate this major milestone and to continue the work toward the next level of platinum.”
