New graduation pledge for class of 2007
May commencement marks the first time graduating seniors can sign a pledge vowing to be socially and environmentally responsible citizens of the world they will enter upon graduation, thanks to the Senior Class Council in partnership with the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. Their pledge reads: "I pledge to consider the social and environmental consequences of choices I make in my personal life and work, and will act with integrity in my workplace and community." Signees will be recognized by the green cords they'll be wearing over their graduation gowns. For more information see the article on the News Center website.
