A brief description of how sustainability is included in new employee orientation (including how multiple dimensions of sustainability are addressed):

President Jonathan Lash welcomes all new employees in an orientation meeting. As part of the orientation, he outlines many of the initiatives on campus, including the importance and priority of the Sustainability Initiative.

A flyer outlining Sustainable Hampshire is provided to and discussed with all new employees, which covers the Hampshire College Sustainability Initiative.

The initiative focuses on four key transitions building upon Hampshire College's strong foundation of innovative research, forward-thinking decision-making, and environmental action and awareness. Hampshire is actively transforming its food systems, campus operations, creative curriculum, and campus culture. This effort capitalizes on the ingenuity, entrepreneurship, and commitment to social justice that have always characterized the Hampshire College community.
