A brief description of how sustainability is included in new employee orientation (including how multiple dimensions of sustainability are addressed):
New Employee Orientations occur approximately twice a month; all new staff employees are encouraged to attend. Sustainability is covered during orientation as part of the presentation, and also in an introductory video about campus programs. Information regarding campus sustainability programs and resources is distributed at new employee orientations. The Staff Sustainability Network is mentioned as a staff association new employees can join. Housing/Dining/Hospitality does its own employee orientation, and sustainability is included in that training as well. Sustainability is also covered for researchers during regular mandatory Lab Safety Trainings conducted by Environment Health & Safety. The safety presentations cover topics such as energy efficient lab equipment use and waste minimization.
