GENESEO – Student Matthew McClure was among seven SUNY Geneseo students presenting projects to address global challenges at the 2015 Clinton Global Initiative University meeting March 6 through 8 in Miami, Florida.
According to a press release from SUNY Geneseo Media Relations Director David Irwin, President Bill Clinton hosted the eighth annual CGI U meeting at the University of Miami alongside Chelsea Clinton, which brought together more than 1,000 innovative student leaders from around the world to present “commitments to action” in five focus areas: education, environment and climate change, peace and human rights, poverty alleviation and public health.
McClure also heard from experts in various fields, brainstormed ideas, shared best practices and formed partnerships in developing and advancing solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges.
Geneseo is among 61 colleges and universities around the globe who have joined the CGI U network. McClure submitted a proposal to present at the meeting through Geneseo’s Center for Inquiry, Discovery and Development (CIDD).
