About TED & TEDx
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or fewer) delivered by today’s leading thinkers and doers. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, and Design – three areas that are collectively shaping our future. Many of these talks are given at TED’s annual conference in Vancouver, and made available for free on TED.com. Past TED speakers include Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Simon Sinek, Sir Richard Branson, Sarah Silverman, Al Gore, Stephen Hawking, and Salman Khan.
TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event, is a program created by TED to bring communities together by sharing TED-like experiences locally. At a TEDx event, hand-picked live speakers combine with TED Talk videos to spark deep discussions and human connection. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized and subject to certain rules and regulations.
TEDxDrewUniversity welcomes people from a broad range of disciplines to share ideas worth spreading. We believe passionately in the power of these ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. We hope to provide students and attendees with a forum for fostering curiosity, excitement, and conversations that matter.
As we head into our second year, we are dreaming bigger, bolder, and more audaciously. We plan on incorporating themed Salon events, student competitions, and TEDx adventures of volunteering and service trips. Our goal is to keep spreading good ideas among the Drew community – and we can’t wait for you to join us.
