A brief description of how sustainability is included in new employee orientation:
Sustainability is included in new employee orientation in many ways; however, many of them do not fit into a formal policy or guidelines. Employees often shadow other employees to gain a sense of the community. New employees are also highly encouraged to participate in a weekly Community Meeting, attend the class A Sense of Place and it's workshops, and also have access to many resources related to sustainability. Depending on an individual's drive, more information can be sought out. All new employees, however, are thoroughly briefed and informed of the college's commitment to Environmental Stewardship and many come with backgrounds in related fields. In fact, many new employees can add to the campuses sustainability and often have in their time here.
