Since 2008, students have made more than 6,250 commitments, and nearly $3 million in funding has been awarded to these commitment-makers through CGI U.
CGI U Commitments to Action
Commitments to Action, a unique feature of the Clinton Global Initiative, translates practical goals into meaningful and measureable results. The five focus areas for Commitments to Action are: education, environment and climate change, poverty alleviation, peace and human rights, and public health. Commitments are new, specific, and measureable initiatives that can be small or large, local or global, financial or nonmonetary in nature.
