Does the institution make training and professional development opportunities available to all staff?:
A brief description of the sustainability trainings and professional development opportunities available to staff :
George Mason University's (Mason) Office of Sustainability provides professional development opportunities to all Mason employees during Faculty and Staff Enrichment Day and during Earth Month.
During the Faculty Staff Enrichment Day, the the Office of Sustainability presented sustainability efforts at Mason, discussed ways departments could go green, answered questions, and encouraged sharing of best practices among the attendees.
In April, a variety of professional development options – some 30 in total -- were provided as part of Earth Month including workshops on sustainable food; building rain barrels; film screenings on pertinent, local, environmental issues; dialogues with distinguished speakers about climate change issues; guided tours of trails on campus; and an environmental expo.
