Percentage of all entering (i.e. new) students (including transfers and graduate students) that are provided an opportunity to participate in orientation activities and programming that prominently include sustainability (0-100):

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

Every new graduate student received a campus resource guide to provide information about campus units and services available as a student at UNO. The FY17/18 guide contained information relevant to sustainability, including public transit, ability to opt-in for digital statements, financial aid, and clubs and organizations participation. The guide and its contents were referenced throughout the dean's presentation at orientation.

All incoming students (first-year and transfer) students are exposed to opportunities to commute to campus through programs such as B-Cycle, MavRIDE, and ZipCars. Sustainability is highlighted in the New Student Welcome Guide which all new students and their families receive. Sustainability, however, is not specifically talked about in an educational way through the programming.
