TEDxPurdueU, an independently organized TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) event, uses storytelling to nurture a culture of innovation by sharing ideas developed by Purdue students, faculty, alumni and community members with the global TED community. At TEDxPurdueU, several live speakers from diverse fields and schools of thought, such as history, science, education, the arts, engineering, business and technology, will combine to spark deep discussion and interconnection among our community of lifelong learners.
The daylong format will allow attendees to receive even more engaging programming, exquisite conference gifts and exclusive networking opportunities. In addition to their annual flagship conference, TEDxPurdueU hosts multiple breakout sessions year-round, fostering an environment for collaborative, interdisciplinary progress around the unique and thought-provoking stories in the Purdue and Greater Lafayette community.
