The meeting will bring together more than 1,000 innovative student leaders to make Commitments to Action in CGI U's five focus areas: Education, Environment and Climate change, Peace and Human Rights, Poverty Alleviation, and Public Health. Through the CGI University Network and other opportunities, funding will be available to select CGI U 2015 students to help them turn their ideas into action.

Student attendees will have the opportunity to attend plenary sessions, working sessions, and other special events covering topics across CGI U's five focus areas and allowing them to network with their peers, build skills, and identify potential partnerships. University representatives, topic experts, and celebrities will join students at CGI U to help them gain the skills and knowledge needed to take action on their commitments. During the last day of the meeting, attendees will take part in a Day of Action in the local community.

Students: apply now. The early decision and travel assistance deadline is October 17, 2014, and the final application deadline is December 1, 2014.
