San Joaquin Delta College international students have been invited to be a part of the President Clinton Global Initiative University (CGIU) Conference March 30-April 1, 2012.

Each year, the CGIU hosts a meeting where students from across the world, national youth organizations, topic experts and celebrities discuss solutions to pressing global issues.

The CGIU will be held at the George Washington University in Washington, D.C.

Making a commitment to action is required in order to attend the meeting.

Commitments range from installing energy-efficient light bulbs on campus, to distributing life saving water filtration kits to nomadic doctors in Africa.

Applicants must make a commitment in order to apply.

There is no charge for applying to or attending the conference.

CGIU also provides a great opportunity to students’ future careers.

“This is an incredible opportunity, especially for those of you who want to transfer to extremely competitive schools like UC Berkeley. Participation in this event would definitely add impact to your application for transfer admission,” said International Student Program Specialist Melissa Black.

The final deadline for the CGIU 2012 application is January 17. Students can apply as a group or individually to attend.
