CGI U brings energy, enthusiasm to WUSTL campus

More than 1,200 of the brightest and most innovative minds in the world gathered on the Washington University in St. Louis campus this past weekend for the sixth annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative University.

CGI U brought 1,000 college students from all 50 states and 75 countries — 200 of them were WUSTL students — and put them together with innovators, thought leaders and civically engaged celebrities. The students made Commitments to Action to address the most pressing challenges facing their campuses and communities in areas such as education, environment and climate change, human rights, poverty alleviation and public health.

A complete story on the weekend will appear in tomorrow’s Record, but the WUSTL News Tumblr blog was updated throughout the weekend. Read about the weekend as it unfolded at
