Percentage of new employees (faculty and staff) that are offered orientation and/or outreach and guidance materials that cover sustainability topics:
A brief description of how sustainability is included in new employee orientation (including how multiple dimensions of sustainability are addressed):
From July 2009 to April 2016, every Monday’s day-long New Employee Orientation (required for all full-time university employees) included a module on sustainability at UofL and the Partnership for a Green City. When the program was cut to a half-day, this in-person training was dropped, but all new employees are still given information in their welcome packet about sustainability at UofL. All are encouraged to sign the Cards Go Green! Pledge, committing to at least three actions to reduce their environmental impact; and encouraged to look for ways they can help the University enhance its sustainability as they settle into their new positions.
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.
