   ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Clinton Global Initiative University gets under way Friday in St. Louis with former President Bill Clinton leading a discussion on the challenges young entrepreneurs and innovators face in launching a new business.

   The president's daughter, Chelsea Clinton, is scheduled to speak at the session. Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, who grew up in St. Louis, is part of the panel.

   More than 1,000 university students from 75 countries and all 50 states are participating in the weekend of events at Washington University. The goal is to develop practical and innovative solutions to the world's problems.

   Previous Clinton Global Initiative conferences have taken place at George Washington University, Tulane University, the University of Texas, the University of Miami, and the University of California, San Diego.

Washington University officials say members of a campus fraternity crossed a line Tuesday when they allegedly hurled racial slurs at a group of African-American students. The incident reportedly involved students pledging the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity.

Washington University’s Student Life newspaper reports that a group of African-American students were having dinner in the Bear’s Den dining facility when a few students approached and took a photo of them. The fraternity pledges then returned with a larger group of people, and began reciting the words to a rap song that contained repeated use of the "N-word."

University officials have suspended the fraternity while they investigate the incident.

Mike Zissman, president of the Wash U chapter of SAE apologized on Facebook for the incident, calling it "detestable" and "completely unacceptable."
