What is a College Partnership?

A college partnership is when a campus department (such as Residence Life, Student Organizations, Academic Advising, Student Affairs, etc.) or an already existing student organization (such as a National Sorority or Fraternity, Student Government, etc.) wants to partner with because I said I would to share the message and importance of making and keeping promises.

What is a Signature Event?

A Signature Event is an annual event that you coordinate to spread the message of because I said I would.  You can choose to do this event campus-wide or within your campus department.   The two Signature Events we have available currently are an Annual Promise Day and a 30 Day Promise Challenge.


The Annual Promise Day is a celebration of promises.  This is a perfect all-campus event.    Your goal for the day is to have members of the campus community learn about and complete a Promise Card.


The 30 Day Promise Challenge is an in-depth challenge to make promise keeping a habit.  This is a great organization-wide or department-wide program.  Your goal is to have members of the campus community sign up to participate and then try to complete as many of the daily challenges as possible.  The daily challenges are related to character development and making promises to self, promises to others, promises to the community and promises for humanity.


What is included in a Signature Event Pack?

A Signature Event Pack includes everything you need to coordinate a signature event on your campus.  You will receive one signature event pack as a part of your Partnership Pack
