Stamps Pro­fes­sor Joe Trumpey has designed a new grad­u­a­tion cord for the Excel­lence in Sus­tain­abil­ity Hon­ors Cord Pro­gram. This pro­gram is designed to rec­og­nize stu­dents who went above and beyond to advance their knowl­edge, skills, and prac­tice of sus­tain­abil­ity ethics while study­ing at the Uni­ver­sity of Michi­gan. Made of Sheep’s wool yarn from Michi­gan and dyed with nat­ural plants, the cord is avail­able to eli­gi­ble students.

Accep­tance to the Excel­lence in Sus­tain­abil­ity Hon­ors Cord pro­gram will allow stu­dents to:

  • Receive an Excel­lence in Sus­tain­abil­ity Hon­ors Cord for graduation
  • Join an exclu­sive alumni LinkedIn Network
  • The oppor­tu­nity to be part of a sus­tain­abil­ity spot­light series

Eli­gi­bil­ity

Stu­dents must par­tic­i­pate in a vari­ety of sus­tain­abil­ity activ­i­ties, pro­grams, intern­ships, jobs, or aca­d­e­mic stud­ies to encour­age multi-dis­ci­pli­nary learn­ing.
Stu­dents must accrue at least 10 points from a list of pos­si­ble activ­i­ties. This list is reg­u­larly updated but is not com­pre­hen­sive. Addi­tional items that are not listed may be sub­mit­ted dur­ing the appli­ca­tion process.

How to Apply

Inter­ested stu­dents can apply up to a year in advance of expected grad­u­a­tion: visit the Excel­lence in Sus­tain­abil­ity Hon­ors Cord Pro­gram web­site to apply.
