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

JCCC Board policy dictates that all new hires (faculty and staff) complete new staff orientation within 90 days of hire, including faculty and staff. Information about signing up for an orientation is included in new hire paperwork and supervisors are supposed to see to it that their employees complete the training.

During the reporting period, the mandated in-person orientation contained PowerPoint slides submitted by Center for Sustainability staff detailing recycling and waste diversion efforts as well as surplus and other reuse initiatives that employees can participate in, among other campus sustainability projects as time allowed (approx. 15 mins was allotted). These were presented by Staff Development staff members.

The website URL where information about sustainability in new employee orientation is available:

Starting in fall 2013 Center staff began delivering a 30 min orientation segment about campus sustainability during the monthly new staff orientation.
