PAE-T2-10: Graduation Pledge
Associate Vice President of Business Services/Community Engagment
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:
Initiated in 2007 by a student member of the Sustainability Advisory Committee, the green graduation pledge program has been sustained on our campus by the SAC Outreach subcommittee with some support from the Live Green House (themed student residence). Each spring we collaborate with the national effort to offer graduating seniors a chance to sign a pledge to consider sustainability principles in their job search and/or bring sustainability messages to their future employer. Pledging seniors wear a green ribbon on their gown at commencement.
