Updated: Mar 7, 2019
Seven teams from the University of Chicago participated in the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) meeting in Boston on October 13-15, 2017— five from Harris Public Policy, one from the Law School, and one from the College. The CGI U was established by President Bill Clinton to support and convene students who are committed to becoming global change agents. The organization has an annual event for selected students who submit outstanding project plans, called Commitments to Action, to solve global challenges in education, environment and climate change, peace and human rights, poverty alleviation, or public health. In 2017, approximately 1,100 teams from across the country were chosen out of 4,000+.
