Yes

A brief description of the graduation pledge program:

In 2011, The New School joined hundreds of other higher education institutions in offering a Graduation Pledge, an initiative launched by students over 20 years ago and now overseen by the Graduation Pledge Alliance.

At Commencement 2011, 377 students (out of 3250 graduates) joined this global community of graduates dedicated to improving society and the environment through their careers. Signatories of the pledge demonstrated this commitment by wearing a green tassel at Commencement.
