SIPS is a formalised programme at the University of Tasmania in Australia for engaging multiple parts of the university in moving the school as a whole forward in terms of sustainability. The programme is formalised with a memorandum of understanding between the operational side of the university and the academic units that interested in doing projects which makes it easier to initiative projects, get things started and move things quickly into courses. Projects can come from many different places, operational, academia or individual students and are integrated into research projects, in class activities and assignments. For example, if there is an operational need, for example a waste audit, the project will connect to academics and students to implement the audit. Students get real life experience but also academic credit. Results are used on campus and have direct operational outcomes on campus.
