Does the institution cover sustainability topics in new employee orientation and/or in outreach and guidance materials distributed to new employees, including faculty and staff?:

A brief description of how sustainability is included in new employee orientation:

Jefferson covers sustainability topics in new employee orientation by teaching new faculty and staff sustainability concepts and how to apply them at Jefferson, as well as at home.

Jefferson’s Sustainability Coordinator began participating in Jefferson’s New Employee Orientation in the spring of 2012. Participating in Jefferson’s new employee orientation introduces to new faculty and staff why sustainability matters and how faculty and staff can translate the importance to fellow colleagues and students. The orientation session supports sustainable operations on all of Jefferson’s campuses and promotes overall sustainability excellence for the college.

When a new employee is hired, a mini bin is given to them, along with specific information about recycling in their department.
