About the Meeting
President Clinton and Chelsea Clinton hosted the eighth annual CGI U meeting from March 6-8, 2015 at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida. The meeting brought together more than 1,000 innovative student leaders to make Commitments to Action in CGI U's five focus areas: Education, Environment and Climate Change, Peace and Human Rights, Poverty Alleviation, and Public Health. Through the CGI University Network, The Resolution Project, and other opportunities, more than $900,000 was provided to select CGI U 2015 students to help them turn their ideas into action. Through the CGI U 2015 Commitments Challenge, student teams raised an additional $25,000 for their work.
Student attendees had the opportunity to attend plenary sessions, working sessions, and other special events covering topics across CGI U's five focus areas and allowing them to network with their peers, build skills, and identify potential partnerships. University representatives, topic experts, and celebrities joined students at CGI U to help them gain the skills and knowledge needed to take action on their commitments.
During the last day of the meeting, attendees participated in a Day of Action in the local community with the Miami Children's Initiative. To kick off the day, Chelsea Clinton and President Clinton were joined by Cecilia Gutierrez, President and CEO of the Miami Children's Initiative, and Shane Battier, NBA Champion with the Miami Heat and Founder of The Battier Take Charge Foundation.
