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

The UA Office of Sustainability staffed a booth at summer 2015 new and transfer student orientations. The booth was part of the University Business Services Fair, which is designed to familiarize new students with different departments and procedures at the University. The Office of Sustainability's booth was featured prominently near the main door and provided information and materials to students about sustainability programming at the University. All new and transfer students are strongly encouraged to attend the Business Services Fair. The Office of Sustainability plans to continue this activity at future orientations and hopefully develop more activities to further their exposure.
