On Wednesday, April 18, the College welcomed students, staff and faculty for TEDxHarperCollege. The event celebrated the College’s Proud Past and Strong Future. Featured speakers talked on topics ranging from overcoming adversity, to future-focused careers using improvisation, to racism and data analytics. Speakers included four students, seven staff/faculty members, one alumna and one community member. The recorded TEDx talks will be available in the TEDx Library and on Harper’s YouTube channel in the coming weeks
About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
