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

In 2018, 2019, and 2021, representatives of the Sustainability Council and the Office of Sustainability have attended in-person New Faculty Orientation (NFO) information fairs, talked with new faculty, and shared information and contacts. They have also prepared orientation documents which are shared in a portfolio of information provided by the organizers of NFO. The non-academic staff onboarding process was reenvisioned in light of the COVID-19 campus shutdown and shifted to self paced, online learning modules. In 2021, HR-Organizational Development partnered with WCU's Office of Sustainability and Sustainability Council to develop online modules to introduce sustainability-focused commute alternatives for new employees and orient them to the university's sustainability commitments and opportunities to contribute to realizing sustainability objectives.
