President Bill Clinton thanks the group and Mayor Stanton for hosting the Clinton Global Intitative University.

Over 1,000 students from around the globe attended the Clinton Global Initiative University this weekend at Arizona State University. The students were proposing initiatives to make the world a better place. Kimble Gilfillan is from Texas Christian University and is working to promote racial harmony.

“So my commitment is specifically trying to create different events that’ll be cater to people’s interest on college campuses that’ll raise awareness about modern-day slavery," Gilfillan said.

Through the Clinton Global Initiative, students pledge to solve issues on a global scale. Gilfillan said the weekend was a great networking opportunity. Other students were promoting initiatives on healthcare for women and children and connecting youth around the world.
