Building on the successful model of the Clinton Global Initiative, which brings together world leaders to take action on global challenges, President Clinton launched the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGIU) in 2007 to engage the next generation of leaders on college campuses around the world. The seventh annual CGI U meeting will bring together students and youth organizations to develop Commitments to Action across five focus areas:

  • Education
  • Environment & Climate Change
  • Peace & Human Rights
  • Poverty Alleviation
  • Public Health

This year’s Clinton Global Initiative University will take place in Phoenix, Arizona at Arizona State University March 21-23, 2014. The University of Houston is committed to sending students to CGI U by providing financial support for a select numbers of participants upon acceptance into CGI U. Students are also eligible to apply for funding toward their CGI U commitments. Visit the CGIU website for more information.
