A brief description of how sustainability is included prominently in new student orientation :
A portion of every online orientation program focused on the Center for Sustainable Development and the Triple Bottom Line in Summer 2020, January 2021 and Summer 2021. This helps to expand new Cougar students' understanding of sustainability as a social, economic and environmental way of thinking. The presentation also covers current projects and opportunities new students have to get involved. In Summer 2021, the orientation packet for the online program provided to all new students includes information about the Center for Sustainable Development and the College's sustainability goals.
