Graduation Pledge

You’re invited to go green—or, at least, to pledge that you will. Every year, graduating seniors are invited to take the Graduation Pledge of Social and Environmental Responsibility. It’s purely voluntary, and the only commitment is the commitment you make to yourself based on your view of what it means to be socially and environmentally responsible. Since 2009, nearly 3,400 graduating students from Pace have signed the Graduation Pledge. Add your name today!
