President Clinton will host the sixth annual meeting of CGI U from April 5 – 7, 2013 at Washington University in St. Louis. The meeting will bring together student leaders, NGO representatives, topic experts, and other prominent innovators to brainstorm ideas, share best practices, and develop their action plans for the months ahead.
Any student above the age of 18 who is enrolled in an institution of higher education at the time of the meeting is eligible to apply. The meeting is free to attend; students are responsible for their own travel and lodging.
In order to apply, students are required to develop a Commitment to Action: a new, specific, and measurable plan that addresses a challenge on campus, in the local community, or around the world. At the CGIU meeting, accepted students then have the opportunity to discuss global issues, develop practical skills, identify potential partners, and formulate concrete plans of action for the months ahead.
