Does the institution make available training and/or other professional development opportunities in sustainability to all staff at least once per year?:

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

In furtherance of the Principia Center for Sustainability’s mission “to educate, promote, and inspire Principia College’s students, faculty and staff to become more responsible local and global environmental citizens”, the Center provides enrichment grants to staff to pursue professional training in sustainability. The primary purpose of grants to staff is to deepen their understanding of campus sustainability issues, including efforts to incorporate sustainability into planning, implementation, and evaluation processes. An example of a staff enrichment grant is the support provided to a staff member to attend the 2014 AASHE Conference in order to receive STARS training! (See also AC-7 for grants to faculty.)
