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

During the new student/transfer student as well as new graduate students orientation which is held within the same time frame, there are extensive verbal and documented references on institution's efforts and commitment to sustainability, the Center of Excellence for Sustainability, with special reference to the most prominent campus sustainable development applications & achievements. These achievements (such recycling points) are demonstrated during the orientation campus tour.Beyond that an further activity in the 2017 Fall orientation included a game on the UN SDGs as well as a sign-up for volunteering to work at the CES and online signage of the ACG Sustainability Pledge.

This task is carried out by the CES Student Assistants, supervised by the ACG Sustainability Manager and Director of the Office. General information and presentation was carried out by the orientation leaders (http://www.acg.edu/current-students/student-services/student-affairs/student-life/student-organizations/orientation-leaders).
Participation in New Student Orientation is required of all new undergraduates/transfer/study abroad and graduate students.
