TED is a non-profit organization that sponsors independent conferences all over the world. These conferences strive to spread new ideas through short, powerful talks that can cover a wide range of topics. TEDxTrumanStateUniversity, sponsored by Student Government, will consider students, faculty and staff and community members for the speaker and host positions. Current students are preferred for the TEDx planning committee. Students Government hopes to showcase presentations which encourage the audience to approach a topic from a unique or unconventional perspective.
