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

All new students entering UCC receive a full programme of orientation. The Student's Union speak to each and every incoming student at this time, and specifically introduce them to the Green Campus programme at UCC. All incoming students are given an orientation pack, outlining the prominent aspects of "student life" in UCC, this orientation pack contains a page detailing the activities of Green Campus. All incoming first year students are also taken on a tour of UCC by the UCC Peer Support Leaders. The sustainability officer speaks at the Peer Support Leader training day, to ensure that all are aware of the sustainability features of the campus and highlight these on the tour. The sustainability officer also speaks at the training sessions for clubs and societies to highlight how these groups can be active in the sustainability activities of UCC.
