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:

In the new employee orientation, the "Blue Goes Green" movement is explained the use of on-campus recycling is encouraged.

There is no information in the Staff Handbook (revised June 30, 2009) on Oklahoma City University's sustainability projects such as recycling or the community garden. There is also no information under the new employee information on the institution's webpage.

There is information on sustainability under the faculty wellness section of the Oklahoma City University website. It provides links to information about recycling, specifically in the Oklahoma City, Edmond, and Norman areas. It also provides information on how to make small changes toward making your way of life more sustainable including changing light bulbs, heating your house, using appliances, and going organic.

It provides information on recycling drop-off locations in the area, and also the paper recycling location on campus.

The website URL for the information about sustainability in new employee orientation:

While there is information for new employees online, I could not gain access to any information that was actually used in new employee orientation.
