Each spring seniors are encouraged to take the pledge of social and environmental responsibility. Take the pledge online here! When you sign the pledge, you will receive a wallet-sized card reminding you of your commitment.
I pledge to explore and take into account the social and environmental consequences of any job I consider and will try to improve these aspects of any organizations for which I work.
The Graduation Pledge of Social and Environmental Responsibility was started in 1987 at Humboldt State University and has since spread to many colleges, universities, and other schools around the world, under the guidance and coordination of the Graduation Pledge Alliance (GPA). The mission of GPA is to build a global community of responsible graduates improving society and the environment through the workplace. GPA’s vision is a world where every graduate, through the workplace, is an effective leader for social and environmental improvement.
