Engineers take the stage, glean inspiration at CGI U

Seventeen students in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering were selected to attend the 2016 Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) on April 1-3 at the University of California Berkeley in the San Francisco Bay Area.

These Fulton Schools students make up the largest contingent from any college at Arizona State University, which had 32 students invited to attend in total. They joined more than 1,200 innovative student leaders from around the world, dozens of topic experts, Bill and Chelsea Clinton and other celebrities, such as Conan O’Brien, at the ninth annual CGI U event.

President Bill Clinton launched CGI U in 2007 to engage the next generation of leaders on college campuses around the world.

Ngoni Mugwisi, a former FURI student and IEEE officer, has been selected to attend the CGI U conference for three consecutive years. He reapplied this year because he saw an opportunity to further the conversation about sustainable development in the world through social impact. Read more
