Each year, CGI U brings together 1,200 undergraduate and graduate students from around the world to address challenges with practical, innovative solutions.
Student participants will do more than simply discuss problems – they’ll take concrete steps to solve them by creating action plans, building relationships, participating in hands-on workshops and following up with CGI U as they complete their projects.
The three-day meeting will include inspiring speeches from President Bill Clinton and Chelsea Clinton, as well as workshops delivered by leading social change experts. Learn more about CGI U by watching this video.
