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 that can be beneficial for employees at the college. The session also includes an overview of the impact of our carbon footprint and other sustainability issues, both locally and globally. Sessions campus natural resource cycles, 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 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 energy use and the usage worldwide directly and indirectly impacts the environment now and in the future for other generations.
