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

New students at the University of Arkansas are required to take a 1-hour course in which they learn about campus life, culture, resources, and academics. Sustainability is one key component of that curriculum. Many of the 17 SDGs are addressed throughout the course. WCOB and Engineering may be exempt, which is why the participation is less than 100%. There is a sustainability booth at all new student orientation events, which promotes active transportation, recycling programs, and sustainability academic paths.
