The Wisconsin School of Business formalized an agreement to become the official UW–Madison liaison with the Clinton Foundation’s Clinton Global Initiative University. CGI U serves to “engage the next generation of leaders on college campuses around the world,” with students making commitments to better their campus, local and global communities.
This is the first year of membership in the partnership for UW–Madison. Founded in 2007 by former president Bill Clinton, CGI U is modeled after the Clinton Global Initiative and serves to “engage the next generation of leaders on college campuses around the world,” according to the organization’s website. Students choose their own “Commitments to Action” that will better their campus, local, and global communities.
