TEDx_logo.jpgNorthwestern students, staff, faculty, alumni and the general public are invited to attend the University's third annual TEDx conference April 9 on the Evanston campus.

“TEDx NorthwesternU 2016” will be held in the McCormick Foundation Center Forum, and its theme is “Beyond Boundaries.”

Founded in 1984 and run by the non-profit Sapling Foundation, TED is devoted to spreading ideas in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). The conference originally focused on technology, entertainment and design and today covers an expansive range of topics -- from science to business to global issues -- in more than 100 languages.


TEDx talks -- independently run versions of TED talks -- also help share new ideas in communities around the globe.

Information about tickets for "TEDx NorthwesternU 2016" will be posted on Northwestern websites in coming weeks.
