Clinton Global Initiative for College Students

Building on the successful model of the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), President Clinton hosts the CGI U Annual Meeting for students and youth organizations to create innovative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing issues. Since its inaugural meeting in 2008, CGI U has brought together more than 3,500 students from over 650 schools and 110 countries.

The CGI U 2012 Annual Meeting will be held at The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. from March 30 – April 1, 2012.

In order to attend, all CGI U participants are required to develop a Commitment to Action: a new, specific, and measurable plan that addresses a challenge on their campus, in their local community, or around the world. The CGI U meeting includes plenary sessions, working sessions, and other special events that provide participants with a wide variety of knowledge-sharing and networking opportunities. The program allows CGI U members to discuss global issues, develop practical skills, identify potential partners, and formulate concrete plans of action for the months ahead.
