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

All new employees are provided with welcome documents and have a benefits orientation within the first week of employment. Both the benefits orientation and some of the overview documents include information on the free employee bus pass benefit, emphasizing the campus commitment to sustainability and encouraging new employees to use public transit to commute to campus.

Each new employee attends Orientation and the sustainability Manager from the Sustainability Office presents on SOU's Sustainability Program at each orientation. The SOU Values and Strategic Plan is also covered at the orientation and sustainability is both a value and a Strategic Direction in the Strategic Plan.
