TEDxDePaulUniversity is an independently run, self-organized event operated under license from TED.
The speaker schedule, raffle prizes, giveaways, performances and surprise audience engagement opportunities have been set for the April 12 event.
Now in its fourth year, TEDxDePaulUniversity will transform the Holtschneider Performance Center, a brand new world-class facility on the Lincoln Park Campus, into a platform for “ideas worth spreading” as the speakers explore this year’s theme: Fast Forward.

What is TEDx?
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, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.
