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

New Employee Orientation is conducted online and in person through the Human Resources Department. Sustainability documents are presented during all new employee orientations, which include both faculty and staff. New employees are guided to links that discuss UCCS’s sustainability vision and mission, recycling information, energy and water conservation, sustainability initiatives and progress on campus, and resources for getting involved. The goal is that new employees will have a better understanding of UCCS's commitment to sustainability on campus and will gain specific knowledge of sustainable actions taken by the university as well as specific practices that staff/faculty can take. A new orientation video is currently being planned that will also include sustainability.
