The HSU Pledge

Born from the Graduation Pledge of Social and Environmental Responsibility, the HSU Pledge encourages students of all standing, as well as faculty and staff, to get involved on our campus and in our community. There has been tremendous support and enthusiasm for the Grad Pledge at Commencement ceremonies since 1987, but students felt they didn’t want to wait for graduation to be thinking about ways to make a positive impact.

"I pledge, as an HSU community member, to discover the social and environmental consequences of my choices and I will engage in positive change on our campus and in our community."

The HSU Pledge is a simple reminder that students, faculty, staff and alumni have the power to build our campus into one that we’re all are proud of. The HSU Pledge is represented by a yellow ribbon, meant to be worn proudly. This is an opportunity for students and faculty to connect with one another and share ideas on how we can make our campus more environmentally friendly and socially aware. When your graduation day arrives, transfer your yellow ribbon onto your gown to compliment your classic green Graduation Pledge ribbon.

All members of the Humboldt State community are encouraged to take the HSU Pledge, if they are so moved.  Click the "Take the Pledge" button to the right.
