20

A brief description of how sustainability is included prominently in new student orientation (including how multiple dimensions of sustainability are addressed):

First-year students participate in SU GIVE, an event that brings SU students, faculty, and staff together to complete volunteer service projects at locations throughout the central Susquehanna Valley. Many of the projects address social and/or environmental sustainability, but the program itself is not "intended to educate about the principles and practices of sustainability." Each year, between 600-700 students volunteer at places such as the Susquehanna Campus Garden, Far Point Animal Rescue, Grayson View Assisted Living, Haven Ministry, Kidsgrove, Mostly Mutts Dog Shelter, Sunbury YMCA, SUNCOM Industries, and Susquehanna Children's Center.
