A brief description of how sustainability is included in new employee orientation:
New Faculty and Administrators’ Orientation both models sustainability and provides information about Frostburg State’s commitment to sustainability. As a model, invitees are encouraged to use FSU’s website to obtain information about a variety of issues that are enumerated on a New Employee Checklist, so that the University does not have to send extensive paper copies describing policies and procedures. Employees attending the orientation receive a recycled tote bag to use to collect information of interest and to reuse. Rather than providing paper descriptions of every area of interest, the Orientation includes a Services Fair when new employees can talk to representatives from numerous offices that provide services to students and employees and choose to collect the information most relevant for each new person. Among the programs represented at the Services Fair is Learning Green, Living Green, the University sustainability initiative.
In their presentations, the President and the Associate Provost both refer to the sustainability initiative as a high priority at FSU and describe relevant activities.
