TEDxWesleyanU is a licensed TED event set for April 27, 2018 in Beckham Hall on the college campus.
Speakers include U.S. Representative for Connecticut Jahana Hayes, Connecticut State Senator Alex Bergstein, best-selling author Dr. Robin Cook, Wesleyan student Dylan Shumway, who won this year’s campus speaker competition, and more.
Several Wesleyan students introduced the TED-inspired talks to Middletown.
“TEDxWesleyanU was founded on the principle of broadening thought diversity on campus and beyond,” said junior Eunes Harun, of Hamden. “Following the incredible response and success of last year’s conference, including selling out within 10 minutes of launch, we’re ecstatic to be bringing TEDxWesleyanU back for its second year.”
TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. They believe in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world!
