CGI U attendees will participate in workshops and meetings focused on five main topics that are of particular importance to college students: education, environment and climate change, peace and human rights, poverty alleviation, and public health. Participants will discuss how student activists can make a difference around the world. Over the three-day meeting, attendees will participate in forums and working sessions to brainstorm ways to make a difference. Two previous meetings were held at Tulane University in New Orleans and The University of Texas at Austin.
Building on the success of the Clinton Global Initiative, CGI U engages university students, organizations and administrators to make commitments that address global issues with practical, innovative solutions.
“I am so proud of the young leaders who have come through the Clinton Global Initiative University. Since the first CGI U meeting in 2008, students from 53 countries have made more than 2,000 commitments that are positively affecting hundreds of thousands of lives around the world,” said President Clinton. “As one of America’s leading intuitions of higher education, the University of Miami offers the ideal venue for the more than 1,000 students who will attend the third annual CGI U meeting to share ideas and join together in taking action to improve the world we all share.”
