In 2006, the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU), the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), and The New York Times initiated a joint project entitled “Seven Revolutions: Educating Globally Competent Citizens.” The primary goal of this project was to design a specific program to promote the study of issues with global importance in hopes of creating students who are more knowledgeable and engaged global citizens. This program, centered on the Seven Revolutions framework developed by CSIS, focused on seven important categories relevant to global citizenship as well as significant future trends: Population, Resources, Technology, Information, Economic Integration, Security/Conflict, and Governance.
