Make the Pledge to be a Green Grad

The Class of 2017 is invited to join thousands of graduates around the world in a commitment to making environmentally and socially responsible decisions.

By signing the Green Graduation Pledge, students agree to “take into account the social and environmental consequences of any future endeavors and to work to improve the sustainability of the communities in which [they] work, live and play.

Volunteers will be at the graduation ticket pick-up table outside of the University Bookstore from 9:00-5:00 on Friday, May 12 to assist seniors in signing the pledge. As a reminder of their commitment, signees will be awarded a reusable travel mug, while supplies last.

This is Wake Forest’s seventh year offering the Green Graduation Pledge to students. The tradition began over 30 years ago at Humboldt State University. Today, the pledge has been offered at over 100 colleges and universities throughout the world facilitated by the Graduation Pledge Alliance.
