A brief description of how sustainability is included in new employee orientation:

All new employees attend New Employee Orientation within the first 12 months of employment. Materials are provided at that time as well as throughout the year via newsletters and other forms of communication.

The Director, Facility Services gives a presentation on sustainability during mandatory new employee orientations. Useful tips on how to conserve water, energy, and paper are discussed. Large blue (recycling) and small black cans in all faculty and staff offices have been installed, explaining that most everything should go into the large commingled recycling can and only a few things (tissues) should go into the ‘trash’ can. ‘Please turn it off’ stickers have also been installed over light switches in all offices and classrooms.
