A brief description of how sustainability is included prominently in new student orientation (including how multiple dimensions of sustainability are addressed):

As part of the opening session of New Student Orientation, sustainability as a core campus value is addressed to all new students. RAs incorporate sustainability information (primarily focusing on recycling/waste reduction) into presentations made to all new and returning residents in the residence halls. The civic engagement component of New Student Orientation provides students with opportunities to become engaged in sustainability-related issues--from work in Lithia Park to the campus garden, from trail maintenance to watershed issues (these have all been options during one or more of the last four years). Meals at New Student Orientation highlight local and organic farms/providers.
