Educational Outreach at VCU New Student Orientation

MCV Green Unity is working to integrate sustainability into new student orientation on MCV campus at Virginia Commonwealth University this year. Part of VCU's Climate Action Plan, this educational outreach effort aims to show students what VCU is doing to be green, and let them know what small, easy behavior changes they can make to help reduce their own environmental impact and CO2 emissions.

MCV is a medical campus consisting of five different academic schools (Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Allied Health). The Schools and groups participating in this sustainability initiative so far include:
  • Student Commons & Activities: Information table at the MCV Orientation Fair
  • VCU Card Office: Information table, various dates and times
  • Nursing: Information table
  • Medicine: Information table at SOM organizational fair
  • SOM, Dept. of Human Genetics: Sustainability presentation
  • Pharmacy: Sustainability information in orientation packages
  • Dentistry: Sustainability information in orientation packages, information table, recycling facilitators at luncheon events
  • Allied Health, Dept. of Anesthesia: Sustainability presentation, sustainability information in orientation packages

    For dates and times of events, please see our Google Events Calendar. If you would like your department or school to include a sustainability component in their student orientation or staff/faculty orientation let your administration know and/or contact us. We are also willing to give short presentations to your group, department, or school.
