The event we are hosting is TEDxUMKC InterconnecTED; it is scheduled for September 15th 2012 and is being carefully planned, organized and delivered by a dedicated committee of students at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, for the benefit of their fellow students, faculty, staff, and the Kansas City community. The theme of this event will be "InterconnecTED." The advantage of having this theme is that it is extremely malleable, and thus we are able to include topics of a wide variety-each of the talks will involve ideas about connections between people, disciplines, thought processes, and emerging ideas. A University is a place of learning and expanding one's ideas, beliefs, and perceptions. The mission of this event is to invite passionate, eloquent and inspiring speakers to impart a body of knowledge and a growing sense of curiosity amongst the audience.
