Dear Dr. Birgeneau,
I am writing on behalf of the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U), President Clinton’s initiative designed to engage the next generation of student leaders on college campuses around the world. The CGI U 2012 Annual Meeting will be held at The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. from March 30 – April 1, 2012.
We kindly ask you to share this opportunity with students on your campus. To be considered for attendance at CGI U, students should apply online at www.cgiu.org by January 17, 2012. I have included a sample email blast, along with Facebook and Twitter blurbs below, which you can use to share with your networks on campus.
Building on the successful model of the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), President Clinton hosts the CGI U Annual Meeting for students and youth organizations to create innovative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing issues. Since its inaugural meeting in 2008, CGI U has brought together more than 3,500 students from over 650 schools and 110 countries.
In order to attend, all CGI U participants are required to develop a Commitment to Action: a new, specific, and measurable plan that addresses a challenge on their campus, in their local community, or around the world. The CGI U meeting includes plenary sessions, working sessions, and other special events that provide participants with a wide variety of knowledge-sharing and networking opportunities. The program allows CGI U members to discuss global issues, develop practical skills, identify potential partners, and formulate concrete plans of action for the months ahead.
Thank you in advance for helping us spread the word about CGI U 2012!
Commitments Manager, CGI U
