A brief description of the sustainability trainings and professional development opportunities available to staff :

The Professional Development Institute provides seminars and training sessions throughout the year. In 2009 and 2010 there were seminars on; "Our footprint and the path to zero" (the staff/faculty role in the path to carbon neutrality), "Greening Your Office," "Urban and Office Gardening," "Sustainability in Healthcare," and "the Live Green Community: Using Service Learning to introduce students to natural resources." There are extensive opportunities for diversity training, wellness programs, and other opportunities that fall within the greater definition of sustainability.

The purchasing department also organizes a Green Market Vendor Fair on campus each year to educate faculty and departments about options for sustainable purchasing.
