Tedx CU

Two CU-Boulder students and one CU-Boulder alumni first created TEDxCU in the fall of 2012. The event was created to bring the student community, and the community of Boulder together to experience an evening of thought provoking talks. The University of Colorado and the Community of Boulder are both thought leaders within their respective arenas, and both parties have a lot to offer one another.  We set out to create an event that would mesh the two, and serve as a connecting platform for both groups.  The event is 100% organized by current and former students of CU. We source speakers  from the University and the community of Boulder. We have hosted 4 successful TEDxCU events, and look to build a long standing tradition that organizers, students, and the surrounding community can look forward to each spring. Located at Old Main 1600 Pleasant St. Boulder, CO 80302

Join us in a conversational presentation where SPAN staff will share how we put ethical communication and non-negotiable policies into action. Participants will also be invited to share their experiences, best practices, and struggles. Childcare and Spanish translation provided free – donations are welcome.
