Graduation Pledge

The Graduation Pledge of Social and Environmental Responsibility is a campus tradition that started at Humboldt in 1987 and has since spread to campuses around the world. It began through the efforts of the Student Citizens for Social Responsibility, a campus club with student and community members. The student's passion about the health and society of our world, and concern for the current status quo, inspired the movement for the Graduation Pledge campaign. Their hard work soon led to student, faculty and community support and the creation of one of Humboldt's most honored traditions.

The Grad Pledge is a personal vow to consider the social and environmental consequences of the decisions that we make after students acquire their degree at Cal Poly Humboldt and move into their career. 

“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 Graduation Pledge is symbolized by a green satin ribbon. These ribbons are available to graduates on the day of commencement. Graduation Pledge staff hands out pins to graduates who wish to take the pledge before graduates enter their commencement ceremony. 

Graduating students are encouraged to take the pledge, if they are so moved.  Click the "Take the Pledge" button to the right.
