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

New Employee Orientations are held every 2 weeks and the Office of Sustainability attends every orientation with time allocated according to the schedule below. All employees are informed of the strategic plan priority for sustainability and notified that the Office of Sustainability is the point of contact to facilitate integration of sustainability into academics, operations, engagment, and administration. All employees receive information related to sustainability efforts in these areas. Furthermore, all employees receive information on campus recycling, green office certification, and energy conservation, since these topics should be applicable to EVERY employee.
