Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart, Twitter exec Biz Stone and hip-hop artist Usher will be taking part in former President Bill Clinton’s fifth annual student conference on global issues.

More than 1,000 students representing all 50 states and 75 countries are expected to attend the Clinton Global Initiative University Meeting, being held March 30 to April 1 at Georgetown University in Washington.

“CGI U gives students an opportunity to get involved and become more effective global citizens,” Clinton said. “Since our first meeting in 2008, young leaders from around the world come together each year. Their passion and commitments continue to inspire me and each other.”

This year’s meeting will focus on five issues: education, environment and climate change, peace and human rights, poverty alleviation, and public health.
