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

100% of NAU new hires are required to complete new employee orientation, and thus are offered orientation materials that cover sustainability topics.

The orientation also introduces new employees to NAU’s strategic goals. As part of the strategic goals discussion, the following is covered:
o Campus efforts in sustainability (prudent use of resources, commitment to reduce carbon footprint, green building initiatives, paperless initiatives).
o Desire to create sustainable processes that don’t constantly require new resources (automation initiatives)
o Sustainable communities – efforts to increase social engagement for students, faculty and staff through speakers, forums, the arts, other campus activities
o Campus resources that employees can access or participate in (recycling program, bus passes, campus events).
