Tenets of the Onyx Senior Honor Society
We acknowledge that personal pursuits are secondary to those that advance justice. Onyx members reflect the organization’s commitment to non-self-absorption.
We, Onyx undergraduate members and Alumni, are bonded in our shared commitments to structural equity within the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, and the world.
As Onyx members, we carry the legacy of perseverance, ingenuity, and Black excellence exhibited by our ancestors at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, and the world.
Together, these principles provide the foundation upon which the society is built.
We carry these tenets with our words, actions, and contributions.
