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

New staff get a "Guide to Living and Working Green at Tufts" booklet during new employee orientation. It contains information about recycling, saving water and energy in the office, smart shopping, transportation, and other sustainability resources at Tufts. In addition, we have recently reduced our paper orientation packet to only include critical paper items, and the rest of the information has been added to the Benefits website in electronic format.

Depending on supplies, new employees sometimes receive the Eco-Map of campus as well. New employee orientation is managed by the HR department.
