What is TEDxGrandCanyonUniversity?
A completely student planned, organized and executed TEDx. This event is run through The Project Management Club on campus and is led by 14 students, all managers in a specific field, to coordinate a large-scale event. This provides the students with an opportunity to gain real life experience, learn what they enjoy doing and most importantly, to be a part of something great!
An opportunity to not only bring the GCU student population together, but also to bring the community of Phoenix together. We will also provide a platform for individuals in Phoenix to finally have a place to express their ideas worth spreading.
Something that will be pursued year after year to improve on the overall operations of the event and bringing GCU and the community as a whole closer together.
This full-day TEDx will be taking place on March 2nd, 2017 in the GCU Arena. Ticket sales are not open yet, but details will be announced in the future but also prior to tickets going
What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, 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 called TEDxGrandCanyonUniversity, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxGrandCanyonUniversity event, TEDTalks video 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. Click here to learn more about TEDx.
