When respondents were asked whether their OP had an environmental policy/statement speaking to sustainability, those with such a policy believed more strongly than those working for an OP without a policy that: • Their university/college administration supports the OP operational decision-making as it relates to pursuing environmentally sustainable practices • Their immediate supervisor (such as director of university recreation) is supportive of OP decision-making concerning the pursuit of environmentally sustainable practices • Their staff pushes them to embrace operational sustainable practices • Their university/college’s student body expects the OP to embrace operational sustainable practices. aore.org | nationaloffice@aore.org 19
