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

Each new employee is provided with a sustainability guide at orientation that outlines the institution's sustainability initiatives. Orientation is an opportunity for new employees to learn more about Stonehill's mission, history, students and aspirations is called the Spirit of Stonehill. Each session consists of a presentation, discussion, and opportunity for conversation with employees from other divisions and departments. This session provides an overview of Stonehill's mission and its foundation in the history and spirituality of the Congregation of Holy Cross. The College Archivist presents a virtual tour of the Stonehill campus highlighting its evolution from the Ames Estate to the Stonehill College we know today. At the final session we discuss the college's efforts at envisioning and planning for its future. The Office of Intercultural Affairs also join the session to communicate its integral role in the education, promotion, and support for diversity at Stonehill. The solar farm and plans for the future in regards to the Farm and other renewable energy options on campus are also discussed as a part of the orientation.
