You do not need to participate in the Commencement Ceremony to sign the pledge. The Pledge is purely voluntary, and your only commitment is the one you make to yourself based on what you consider to be socially and environmentally responsible.
Once you have taken the Pledge, you will receive a green ribbon. Ribbons will be distributed along with caps and gowns from Monday, May 6 through Thursday, May 9.
If you are participating in Commencement, please be sure to wear your ribbon! Let your friends and family know that you are part of this global movement!
I pledge to exercise responsibility, compassion, and integrity in my academic, professional, and personal lives, and to apply ethical principles when making social and environmental decisions that have the ability to shape the future of our global community
