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:

Although UC San Diego does not have an official graduation pledge, UC San Diego provides multiple pledges that students, staff, faculty and community members can take to affirm their social and environmental responsibility. John Muir Week (The week in April that includes John Muir's birthday (April 21), which is also normally Earth Week), UC San Diego's Muir College runs an "I Pledge" program in which they offer incentives to students who pledge to alter their future behavior in some particular way that promotes a more sustainable environment. This pledge includes students' futures at UC San Diego and their futures after graduation. Additionally, the Sustainability Resource Center is sponsoring an Own Your Impact campaign is an awareness movement that challenges community members to own their environmental, fiscal, and social impacts by making the commitment to practice sustainable choices in their daily lives. As the first official campaign endorsed by the UC San Diego sustainability staff and Student Sustainability Collective at the Sustainability Resource Center (SRC), this campaign represents a collaborative effort to utilize the SRC's resources to inspire others to exercise sustainable habits. Own Your Impact is marketed by the SRC and promotes its services offered to the community at large.
