A brief description of the sustainability trainings and professional development opportunities available to staff :

The Sustainability Office and Campus Recycling offer training to all OSU faculty and staff several times each year, and by request. The most significant training event is Training Days, a two-day-long set of workshop sessions that deal with a variety of university issues.

Past sustainability-related sessions have included 1) Greening Your Events: Practical tips and samples; 2) Sustainability for Campus Communicators.

Additional training opportunities are often made available during OSU's annual Earth Week celebration in April.

OSU staff periodically organize Northwest Earth Institute discussion courses centered on sustainability. The Sustainability Advocates also deliver information about training opportunities to contacts in the departments the Advocates represent.

Several times each year, the Sustainability Office provides department-specific trainings and/or orientations for employees, typically working with the requestor to tailor content to the department's needs at the time.
