ER-3: Sustainability in New Student Orientation
Institution includes sustainability prominently in its new student orientation activities and programming. Sustainability activities and programming are made available to all new students and are intended to educate about the principles and practices of sustainability.
Because orientation activities vary from one institution to another, prominent inclusion of sustainability may not take the same form on each campus. When reporting for this credit, each institution will determine what prominent inclusion of sustainability means given its particular context.
As this credit is intended to measure sustainability being infused throughout the institution, program or discipline-level orientations are not included in this credit.
This credit applies to all institutions that hold a new student orientation.
Institutions earn 2 points for meeting the criteria outlined above. Partial points are not available for this credit.
Report activities from the most recent orientation held.
