CGI U 2013 | Washington University in St. Louis

Clinton Global Initiative University at WUSTL April 5–7

In anticipation of the upcoming Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) at Washington University in St. Louis April 5-7, the Gephardt Institute for Public Service is offering funds for students, faculty and staff interested in creating programming and events related to the five CGI U focus areas:

  • Education
  • Environment and Climate Change
  • Peace and Human Rights
  • Poverty Alleviation
  • Public Health

The programming may take place before, during or after the CGI U event. The target audience for the program or event should be primarily students.

Beginning Feb. 1, WUSTL groups and individuals may apply for grants to cover program expenses such as rentals, marketing, supplies, refreshments and speaker honoraria.

The funding may fully cover program costs or be supplemented by other sources. Collaborative proposals are encouraged.

Proposals will be accepted through February and March and should be submitted at least two weeks prior to the proposed event.

A university-wide CGI U rally will take place from 4:30–6 p.m. March 27. The rally will be part of the annual Gephardt Institute Faces of Hope celebration.

This year, Faces of Hope will highlight the WUSTL students who will focus on their commitments to action during CGI U. WUSTL’s campus commitment also will be unveiled as the entire WUSTL community is invited to help make it a reality.

“A large group of Washington University students will be selected to participate in and volunteer for CGI U,” Hattori says. “There will be multiple opportunities for the campus community to demonstrate its commitment to social change.”
