Graduation Pledge Alliance
The Graduation Pledge of Social and Environmental Responsibility is a campus tradition that started at HSU in 1987 and has since spread to campuses around the world. The Pledge is a simple personal vow to consider the social and environmental consequences of the decisions that we make:
“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 GPA is currently collecting volunteer and internship opportunities for undergraduates and invites you to visit the office to see what awaits you (office hours are by appointment, Tuesday and Thursday. Contact the coordinator at the email provided)
The Graduation Pledge Alliance has since expanded to include students of all class standings. The pledge isn't just about the workplace either; its a lifestyle! The GPA looks forward to providing students with a variety of workshops and collaborative projects with other Sustainability Coalition groups to help them stay green at home as well as the workplace.
