Dex Burns has been selected to join the Clinton Global Initiative University’s (CGI U) class of 2022. The CGI U is a year-round program established by President Bill Clinton in 2007 to bring together a dynamic community of young leaders committed to developing innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges.
The highly-selective program presents a unique opportunity to connect aspiring leaders with leading experts in business, technology, and social impact. Each year, thousands of undergraduate and graduate students from across the country and around the world apply to participate in CGI U’s year-round community of learning, leadership, and action — beginning with a global meeting where participants, topic experts, and high-profile innovators convene to support and learn from one other.
CGI U helps to develop the next generation of leaders and social entrepreneurs, by connecting accepted students with training and mentorship opportunities, access to a wide range of international experts and change agents, and invitations to networking events with their peers and program alumni.
