Additional documentation to support the submission:

UW-Madison holds an annual Academic Staff Institute (https://acstaff.wisc.edu/professional-development/academic-staff-institute), a half-day devoted to professional development for the University's academic staff. While in many years a portion of this event has covered topics of Sustainability it is not guaranteed to always be addressed and so we did not count it in this response.

UW-Madison Human Resources department offers a variety of trainings and professional development (https://hr.wisc.edu/professional-development/courses/?) including courses on engagement, inclusion, and diversity and well-being. While these courses touch on sustainability-related themes they are not designed to directly train in sustainability.
