TEDxRIT started as an idea. A small group of students wanted to make a difference and start conversations on campus. Fast forward two years later. We now have over 700 likes on our Facebook page and, with the help of twenty dedicated students, are planning our second annual event. We pride ourselves on being diverse, unique, and as inclusive as possible to all ideas and people. TEDxRIT is for the students, by the students, and as our club continues to grow and become more successful, we will never forget why we started and what we strive for.
In the spirit of “ideas worth spreading,” TED granted our club a license to hold our very own TEDx event. Featuring a combination of live speakers and performances, our goal is to spark deep discussions and connections within our forward thinking community. TEDxRIT embraces the pillars that RIT stands on, celebrating the diversity of our community through engaging students and faculty in groundbreaking conversation.
