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

UNDERGRAD:
Sustainability is a featured link on the “planning your move” website:
http://yalecollege.yale.edu/content/planning-your-move

Additionally, when freshmen arrive, the Student Task-force for Environmental Partnerships(STEP) leads a one-hour session during orientation. STEP coordinators also attend the freshman formal dinner to message about how to get involved with sustainability and the importance of going tray-less.

GRAD:
Sustainability is a part of first year orientation at the School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, Divinity School, and the Hall of Graduate Studies. Students at the School of Public Health and the School of Management also receive information, although there is no in-person training.
