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

Sustainability efforts are addressed at USF in our new employee orientation called Welcome to USF. While reviewing USF’s Culture of Excellence, we list examples of Engagement, Achievement, Discovery, & Collaboration. We point out the achievements and discovery in the areas of solar power and electric cars, and other green technology. In addition, we point out the many ways to commute to work and around the campus with ride sharing, the Bull Runner, and the WeCar.
