At TEDxTCU, our mission is to create an intellectually stimulating environment outside the classroom for students to embrace interdisciplinary perspectives. TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is TEDxTCU,where x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDx TCU event, TED Talks and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
