Take the I Am A Gryphon Pledge today!


At the University of Guelph, our Gryphon spirit is embodied in five core commitments that ground our actions and interactions at Guelph, in the community, and in the world beyond our campus: Gryphons are respectful and caring; determined to do our best; engaged both inside and outside of the classroom; and authentic to our true selves.  These five commitments are at the heart of what it means to be a Gryphon.

This website was designed to support members of the University of Guelph community in learning more about the I am a Gryphon campaign, the five commitments, and the various tools and strategies you can use to promote the campaign through your own programming and initiatives.  In keeping with the University's commitment to the education and wellbeing of the whole person, over time this website will also provide information and further resources on topics related to the campaign, such as anti-hazing, alcohol awareness and education, being a bystander, sexual violence, safety in the community, and mental wellbeing. 

Meanwhile, thanks for stopping by. And if you haven't signed the pledge, we encourage you to do so. Make your commitment to join the growing community of University of Guelph Gryphons who have pledged to be #respectful #caring #determined #authentic and #engaged!
