Yesterday two Honors College students gave me some good news that absolutely made my day. The two seniors told me they have been selected to participate in the Clinton Global Initiative University, a program developed by the Clinton Foundation to get college students and graduates worldwide involved in solving societal problems. It’s a significant honor for the students and for the university, given just how hard it is to win acceptance into this program, which brings together student leaders, experts, and policy makers for a meeting next month in St. Louis.
The students, Jazmyne Butler and Ashley Betts, are both seniors graduating in May. I asked them to come to my office to do a brief video to tell you about the program.
