A brief description of how sustainability is included in new employee orientation:
The Center for Sustainability Education provides an overview of their services to the new employees of the College a minimum of six times per year. During each session, the facilitator describes sustainability education services provided for students at the college which includes an overview of the impact of our carbon footprint and other factors on the environment both locally and globally. It is related to use of natural resources from how they are obtained and converted to energy products to how we use the products, and how we conserve and recycle the by-products of the waste materials. The educational process looks at all perspectives of sustainability including but not limited to organic food and food products; alternative fuels and energy sources; consumption of natural products for food, work and other purposes; and how our use and the use worldwide directly and indirectly impacts the environment now and in the future for other generations.
