What is TED?
TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world.

What is TEDx?
The TEDx Program is designed to help communities, organizations and individuals to spark conversation and connection through local TED-like experiences. At TEDx events, a screening of TED Talks videos — or a combination of live presenters and TED Talks videos — sparks deep conversation and connections at the local level. TEDx events are planned and coordinated independently, under a free license granted by TED.

What is TEDxAzusaPacificUniversity?
TEDxAzusaPacificUniversity is an independently organized TED event that brings together the smartest thinkers, best ideas, and greatest teachers based on the theme Inspiring Ideas and Meaning. A half-dayTEDxAzusaPacificUniversity affords APU students, faculty and staff the opportunity to deepen community engagement with values, character, ethics and new ideas. We hope to give our great community leaders the chance to inspire and those who attend to be inspired.
