Yes

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

Since July 2009, every Monday’s day-long New Employee Orientation (required for all full-time university employees) has included a module on sustainability at UofL and the Partnership for a Green City. All new employees are asked to sign the Cards Go Green pledge, committing to at least three actions to reduce their environmental impact as employees.

Beginning in 2010, sustainability information is also distributed during July’s New Faculty Orientations, including the Cards Go Green pledge and details about specific projects faculty and students can get involved in to help transform UofL into a living laboratory for sustainability.
