Does the institution make available training and/or other professional development opportunities in sustainability to all staff at least once per year?:

A brief description of the sustainability trainings and professional development opportunities available to staff :

"Sustainability in the Workplace" is offered through Human Resources orientation training. The training covers opportunities that faculty, students, and staff have to adopt sustainable practices in daily operations. Attendees learn how their actions affect the environmental footprint of the University and what they can do on a daily basis to help UNCP become sustainable.
Some of the things that our Eco Leaders are doing to engage others in sustainability are 1. Incorporates at least one assignment in each course that concerns environmental sustainability. 2. Co-founded the Greener Coalition student club to help the campus in "going green". 3. Oversee day-to-day operators and marketing of the new food waste bio-digestor which diverts food waste from the landfill. 4. Replacing all light fixtures with more energy-efficient models making them more sustainable, which is saving the university money. 5. Collecting rainwater to irrigate landscape. 6. Installation of two plug-in-electric vehicle charging stations combined with a 2 kilowatt solar photovoltaic array.
