What It Means to Be True Blue
MTSU is a community committed to learning, growth, and service. We hold these values dear, and there’s a simple phrase that conveys them: “I am True Blue.” New students at convocation take the True Blue Pledge. It underscores our core values of honesty and integrity; respect for diversity; engagement in the community; and committing to reason, not violence. These words express not only the ideals the University wishes to share with its students but also our devotion to student success.
The Campus Non-Violence Committee will recognize up to five (5) student organization events between Aug. 23, 2021, and April 8, 2022, incorporating a combination of imagery, themes and values that best reflect, inform and engage the campus about the True Blue Pledge. Selected events will receive a $500 cash prize and recognition from the University.
