The website URL where information about the graduation pledge program is available:

While we have not yet adopted a Graduation Pledge, our students do subscribe to the The Beneficence Pledge:

_____Members of the Ball State University Community...

...pledge to maintain high standards of scholarship and excellence; to work with students, faculty, and staff to strengthen teaching and learning on campus.

...pledge to practice academic honesty; to model and uphold academic integrity, to honor their peers and earn the trust and respect from all members of the community.

...pledge to act in a socially responsible way; to treat each person in the Ball State community with civility, courtesy, compassion, and dignity; to respect the property and environment of the campus.

...pledge to value the intrinsic worth of every member of the community; to repsect and learn from differences in people, ideas, and opinions.

This is in keeping with the vision of Ball State University is, in part, to be “a learner-centered and socially responsible academic community.”
