Our Manager for Custodial Services and Director for the Office of Sustainability have been hosting meetings and presentations on campus sustainability (especially waste related) with the staff from the library, Department of Arts and Humanities, Events and Conferences, offered one session each of the summers of 2017 and 2018 for all of campus, and continue to schedule other meetings around campus. Most of the programs lasted about 20 minutes with time for follow-up questions.

The purpose of this is so they will then work in their department areas and help be staff ambassadors for sustainability work on campus. This will be as part of their regular duties.

An example of this is a one-on-one training with a staff person from our Events and Conferences Team and then she led a sustainability office training for her team of about 15 people.
