Graduating Sustainability Pledge 

"I pledge to consider the impacts my job and lifestyle have on social equity and the environment. I will try to improve both of these aspects through individual and collective actions.”

Sustainability Pledgers to Date:  206

TAKE THE SUSTAINABILITY PLEDGE

In conjunction with the Graduation Pledge Alliance, the College of Social & Behavioral Science seeks to build a global community committed to social and environmental responsibility in the workplace and through individual action to build a healthy, sustainable, and just world. The Sustainability Pledge asks individuals to consider the impacts their job and lifestyle has on social equity and the environment and encourages them to improve both of these aspects through individual and collective actions. 

Those who commit to The Sustainability Pledge will receive a green cord to wear at commencement and convocation to symbolize their commitment. Pledgers will be recognized at the College of Social & Behavioral Science's Convocation
