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

Sustainability is featured throughout orientation. The Office for Sustainability tables at Orientation Express, an opportunity for new students to meet all offices that might be of use to them while they are on campus. Sustainability is prominently featured in welcome materials for incoming students. The Office for Sustainability also provides sustainability education and recycling training for all Orientation Advisors and Resident Assistants, which are passed on to students throughout welcome week. Signs about waste reduction and how to recycle are also posted prominently in the residence halls during move-in. Lastly, the Office for Sustainability presents as part of Roadmap, a program designed to help new students make choices that maximize the opportunities the University of Richmond offers and better prepare them to face critical decisions for their future through intentional and developmental experiences.
