A brief description of how sustainability is included in new employee orientation:

UCSC does not offer a staff new employee orientation program. However, new employee payroll sign-ups are conducted by the Employment unit within Staff Human Resources twice weekly. Governmental and University forms necessary to the hiring process are completed during these sessions. A packet containing information on a variety of UC policies and campus services is distributed at the end of this meeting. Sustainability is not covered in either the presentation or the packet.

In Academic Year 2012/13 The Department of Physical Planning and Construction provided optional sustainability training to new employees.
