Additionally, a short presentation is given by the Office of Campus Sustainability Manager to incoming Facilities employees. Other employees across campus can book a sustainability orientation presentation through the Office of Campus Sustainability. Sustainability initiatives and goals are addressed within this presentation including: energy, waste, buildings, green space, food systems, transportation, emissions, water, and purchasing sustainability targets and programs.
