Clinton Global Initiative
Established in 2005 by President Bill Clinton, the mission of the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) is to turn ideas into action. CGI convenes global leaders to create and implement innovative solutions to the world's most pressing challenges.
Laureate has partnered with the Clinton Foundation and CGI since 2008 on these initiatives:
Laureate supports the Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meetings each year, and broadcasts them to tens of thousands of students and faculty in its network.
Laureate sponsors and sends student ambassadors to the Clinton Global Initiative University, which challenges college students to address global issues with practical, innovative solutions.
Laureate has made two commitments to CGI to provide more than 1,000 scholarships to teachers around the world, and to recognize, train and promote 500 young social entrepreneurs worldwide.
