Clinton Global Initiative University (CGIU) – April 5-7, 2013; early decision applications due November 30

Building on the successful model of the Clinton Global Initiative, which brings together world leaders to take action on global challenges, President Clinton launched the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) in 2007 to engage the next generation of leaders on college campuses around the world.

Each year, CGI U hosts a meeting where students, youth organizations, topic experts, and celebrities come together to discuss and develop innovative solutions to pressing global challenges. CGI U 2013 will be held at Washington University in St. Louis from April 5 – 7, 2013, bringing together nearly 1,200 attendees to make a difference in CGI U’s five focus areas: Education, Environment and Climate Change, Peace and Human Rights, Poverty Alleviation, and Public Health.

 To apply to CGI U for early decision and travel assistance the application deadline is Friday, November 30, 2012. The final application deadline is Wednesday, January 30, 2013.  

If you are a Parsons student and are interested in applying, please contact Pamela Klein at kleinp@newschool.edu for funding opportunities to support engagement in CGI U.   Students from other divisions can contact their respective Dean’s offices for potential support once accepted by CGI U.

All New School students, once accepted to participate in CGI U,  should inform Amy Minter at mintera@newschool.edu in the Provost office of your acceptance and whether you have received financial assistance from CGI U.
