Established in 2007, CGI University (CGI U) challenges college students to address global issues with practical, innovative solutions. CGI U participants take concrete steps to solve problems by creating action plans, building relationships, participating in hands-on workshops, and following up with CGI U as they complete their projects. Their efforts have culminated in nearly 4,000 Commitments to Action. CGI U meetings have taken place at colleges across the country and have brought together more than 4,500 students from nearly 750 schools, more than 130 countries, and all 50 states. The 2013 CGI U Meeting took place from April 5-7 at Washington University in St. Louis.
