The CGI University Network is a growing consortium of colleges and universities that support, mentor, and provide seed funding to leading student innovators and entrepreneurs on their respective campuses. To join the CGI University Network, a university must provide a minimum of $10,000 in funding to CGI U student commitment-makers from its campus. Students and university representatives come together at the CGI U Annual Meeting to hear from experts in various fields, brainstorm ideas, share best practices, and form effective partnerships. Students then return to their campuses and communities to turn their ideas into action, with the support of seed funding and mentorship from their universities. Members of the University Network have access to high-quality featuring opportunities, including publicity in CGI U materials and the possibility of coverage from a wide variety of media outlets.
Fifty-five schools have already joined the University Network for 2016, pledging more than $640,000 total to support leading student innovators on their respective campuses. If your university has already joined the network, you can contact your campus liaison for more information. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212.710.4492.
