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

Sustainability is promoted to all new students, particularly at the commencement of the academic year. O-week activities include compulsory Faculty welcome events for new and transferring students.

Sustainability features at the Faculty compulsory welcome, promoting how easy it is to embrace sustainability on campus. UQ's Sustainability tips are promoted during this time.

The 'UQ Welcome Crew' (student orientation crew) is trained in sustainability on campus, including key initiatives, a global perspective and UQ's 6 simple sustainability tips for students. This Crew is a team of senior students that are easily identifiable by their 'Welcome Crew' T-shirts, and they conduct tours, events and activities for new students and assist with settling in to campus life.

UQ's Sustainability Tips are shared and promoted on the University's social media channels. Information on Sustainability Tips is online
This site includes links to further information on each of the tips, as well as a sustainability welcome video (lower right hand side of webpage, or access directly on vimeo https://vimeo.com/389128540 )
