PAE-13: Staff Professional Development in Sustainability
Office of Sustainability
Does the institution make training and professional development opportunities available to all staff?:
A brief description of the sustainability trainings and professional development opportunities available to staff :
Typically offered once per semester to all faculty and staff on campus through Training and Development: GET029 Green Your Office!
A "green" office is one that is both healthy and efficient in its use of resources. The result is less wasteful work practices, efficiency, and a more pleasant place to work. And, not only does it save money and time, but it goes easier on the environment, which is something that many of us appreciate. In this session you will learn about what sustainability means, how it influences your work-life, and practical things you and your department can do to help save money and our resources.
Additional professional development opportunities have been offered to Green Team captains in the past, and the Office of Sustainability is continuing to develop topic-specific training for faculty and staff. Workshops are usually held in conjunction with existing outreach campaigns, like "Chomp Down on Energy" and "One Less Car".
