About the 7 Revolutions Initiative

In 2006, ADP partnered with the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) to translate the 7 Revolutions into curricular and co-curricular strategies to educate globally competent American citizens. The 7 Revolutions content was created by CSIS and identifies the seven global trends that will shape the world by 2030, in areas such as population, resource management and technological innovation. To learn more, visit 7 Revolutions website.

About the Institute

Institute participants will be offered an in-depth exploration of the 7 Revolutions led by CSIS experts and the 7 Revolutions Scholars. Each Institute participant will receive a toolkit for using the content of the 7 Revolutions in on-campus projects and courses. This practical and insightful Institute is ideal for universities that want to deepen their commitment to providing effective international education in a variety of disciplines. The 7 Revolutions curriculum has been taught in a wide range of formats including first-year seminars, as well as sociology, theater, and mathematics courses.
