Clinton Global Initiative
Building on the successful model of the CGI Annual Meeting, President Clinton launched the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) in 2007 to engage the next generation of leaders on college campuses throughout the world. Each year, the CGI U Meeting invites students, national youth organizations, topic experts, and celebrities to discuss solutions to pressing global issues.
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 communities, or around the world. Their efforts have resulted in more than 3,000 commitments to date. The 2012 CGI U meeting was March 30 through April 1, 2012 at the George Washington University in Washington, D.C.
