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

1) Health insurance: 100% of new employees offered orientation.

2) UNLV is a member of the National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO).
All employees are offered free on-demand videos. Each 30-minute video is suggested by the member survey from NACUBO's Sustainability Advisory Panel. The series "Expanding Financial Leadership Series: Facilities, Energy Efficiency and Sustainability" helps employees to better understand facilities and energy jargon from the comfort and convenience of their office. Attendees will gain knowledge on issues that pertain to the expanding campus financial duties beyond the balance sheet. The first video being released in this series is Definitions and Strategies for Sustainability. During this on-demand video, Dr. Gary Dirks, director of Arizona State University (ASU) Lightworks, explains a wide spectrum of sustainability issues. Dr. Dirks will also discuss major trends they are undertaking and explain how ASU discovers solutions and implements practices that will help drive the transition to a sustainable world. Employees learn cost-saving initiatives that impact the triple bottom line (people, environment and economics) of an institution.
