Denison Participates in "Green" Graduation Pledge
Each year at Denison's Commencement ceremony, hundreds of graduating students don green ribbons signifying that they signed the Graudation Pledge of Social and Environmental Responsibilty. Over 100 colleges and universities offer this pledge, which emphasizes environmental responsibility after students graduate. On Denison's campus, both the Environmental Studies Senior Fellows and the Office of Sustainability coordinate the program.
The pledge states, "I pledge to explore and take into account the social and environmental consequences of the decisions I make in my personal life and the actions I take in my professional career. I will strive to continually better my community and the global society in which I live."
The Environmental Studies Senior Fellows invite all of their classmates to sign the Graduation Pledge.
