Does the institution administer a graduation pledge through which students pledge to consider social and environmental responsibility in future job and other decisions?:

A brief description of the graduation pledge program:

Each year at Denison's Commencement ceremony, hundreds of graduating students don green ribbons signifying that they signed the Graduation Pledge of Social and Environmental Responsibility.

On Denison's campus, both the Environmental Studies Senior Fellows and the Office of Sustainability coordinate the program.

The pledge states, "I pledge to explore and take into account the social and environmental consequences of the decisions I make in my personal life and the actions I take in my professional career. I will strive to continually better my community and the global society in which I live."
