Graduation Pledge Alliance: A Pledge of Social and Environmental Responsibility

  • MA

About Us

The Graduation Pledge Alliance (GPA) is a network of colleges and universities that provides students the opportunity to pledge their commitment to social and environmental responsibility with the following text:

"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."

Since the founding of the GPA in 1987, over 250,000 people have taken the Graduation Pledge. The Graduation Pledge and activities surrounding it help educate and motivate students to contribute to a better world and can be a focal point for other types of consciousness-raising both on and off campus. The Pledge has received national media coverage in newspapers, radio, and television. If you are involved in a Graduation Pledge campus chapter or are interested in starting one on your campus, please let us know.
