Graduation Pledge of Social and Environmental Responsibility
You do not need to participate in the Commencement Ceremony to sign the pledge. The Pledge is purely voluntary, and your only commitment is the one you make to yourself based on what you consider to be socially and environmentally responsible.
Once you have taken the Pledge, you will able to pick up a green ribbon which can be worn on your gown to let your friends and family know that you are a part of this global movement. Ribbons can be picked up prior to commencement at the sustainability table, or mailed to you if you do not participate in commencement.
“I pledge to exercise responsibility, compassion, and integrity
in my academic, professional, and personal pursuits, and to apply
ethical principles when making social and environmental decisions
that have the ability to shape the future of our global community.”
