Sustainability @ Commencement

Since 2019, the Deree, Pierce and Alba Commencement ceremonies are following the ACG Sustainable Events Guidelines, reducing the amount of hardcopy invitations, encouraging recycling best practices, minimizing waste during the post-commencement reception, etc.

Additionally, graduates sign the “ACG Graduation Sustainability Pledge” and wear the ACG Cares green ribbon on their gowns signifying their commitment to advancing sustainability outside campus walls.
