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

The Institute of Leadership in Higher Education, supported by the Office of Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, facilitates a two-day New Faculty Orientation every year, for all new full-time/visiting faculty members joining the University. Mainly, the program aims to welcome new faculty to the UoS community and give an overview of the University structure including the Sustainability Office.
Moreover, new faculty and staff members, who mostly live on campus, are involved in the sustainability initiatives, i.e. sustainable garden which is located near the faculty members’ housing.
Many sustainable practices are adopted in the sustainable garden project such as food waste recycling to produce compost and renewable energy (solar) (see attached ppt)
