ONLY STUDENTS GRADUATING IN FALL 2013 AND SPRING 2014 ARE ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE
A commitment to social and environmental stewardship beyond college
This is the fourth year The New School joins hundreds of other higher education institutions in offering a Graduation Pledge, an initiative launched by students over 20 years ago and now overseen by the Graduation Pledge Alliance. In 2013, 487 students, or 16% of the graduating class, signed the pledge, up from 15% of graduates in 2012.
By committing to the pledge below, you will be joining a global community of graduates dedicated to improving society and the environment through their careers. Signatories of the pledge will also demonstrate this commitment by wearing a green tassel at Commencement. (Pick up your green tassel at Cap and Gown Distribution in May.)
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.
All fields are required.
