Does the institution include sustainability prominently in new student orientation?:
A brief description of how sustainability is included prominently in new student orientation:
UDC Sustainability Initiative staff present information on sustainability-related topics, including efforts undertaken at the University to improve sustainability in learning, research, and operations, to all new student orientation classes. The presentations use a case study in stormwater management in the Van Ness neighborhood which surrounds and includes the main UDC campus. The integration of sustainability education in new student orientation classes began in the spring 2011 semester and will continue indefinitely.
