TEDxVillanovaU is an on-campus organization that provides a platform to Villanova students, faculty, staff, and alumni to share their stories and perspectives with the greater Villanova and TED communities.

We strive to be an inclusive and diverse organization as we empower the valuable voices of whose voices may not normally be heard, and work alongside other organizations on campus to shape what it means to be a Villanovan.

This year’s theme is "Ignite Change". This conference theme speaks to a central focus at Villanova. For Villanovans, Ignite Change means becoming who we are not yet. We seek to uplift the amazing members of our Villanova community contributing to three key areas that embody “Ignite Change” for our institution of higher education: research change, personal and interpersonal growth, and cultural change. In line with this theme, we encourage you all to take home the messages from today and ignite change in your lives and communities.

Please view our digital Event Program to read about each of our eight (8) featured speakers for this conference!

This event is striving to be a "ZERO WASTE" event, meaning please bring your own reusable water bottle! We are also collecting donations to the Upper Merion Area Community Cupboard--so please bring non-perishable food to donate!

Doors open at 11:30am and talks will start at 12:00pm. A catered reception will follow the talks at approximately 4:30pm. Open to the public, and registration at the door is possible! Pre-registration is encouraged but not required.
