The Graduation Pledge of Social & Environmental Responsibility of the Graduation Pledge Alliance states: students model green cords

"I pledge to explore and take into account the social and environmental consequences of any job I consider and to try to improve these aspects of any organizations for which I work."

Graduating seniors at CU Boulder can take the pledge and get an optional green cord to wear at graduation to show your commitment to environmental and social responsibility in your future career.
