Sustainable Graduation

What is the Sustainable Graduation Pledge

The Sustainable Graduation Pledge is part of global campaign that motivates and encourages graduating students to live a environmentally and socially conscious life. Taking the pledge means that you are willing to improve upon sustainable practices in your life, community, and work.

Why Take the Pledge?

CSU Monterey Bay is dedicated to encouraging its students and alumni to be active sustainability leaders in their local communities, careers and personal lives. Graduation is an achievement to celebrate as a degree carries a responsibility and privilege for action. We encourage you to embrace that responsibility by committing to embed sustainability into your post-grad journey - whatever it may mean to you. Taking the Sustainable Graduation pledge means that you are a part of transforming a society that is equitable for all people and for planet.

Special Opportunity for 2021 Graduates

Tanimura & Antle Memorial Library at CSU Monterey Bay

The graduation yard sign that you receive is made of "flag material" that can be reused. Students are encouraged to decorate their flags by adding their name, picture, and possibly a quote. You can mail your flag back to campus, to be weaved into a Campus COVID Quilt. The quilt will be displayed, honoring all the students who graduated during COVID. More information on this coming soon.
