Northeastern students tackle global challenges at Clinton Global Initiative conference

Fif­teen North­eastern stu­dents will par­tic­i­pate in the Clinton Global Ini­tia­tive Uni­ver­sity con­fer­ence this weekend in San Fran­cisco. The con­fer­ence will con­vene col­lege stu­dents to dis­cuss and develop inno­v­a­tive solu­tions to pressing global chal­lenges. We spoke with some of the stu­dent atten­dees about their projects and what they hope to gain from the experience.
