Take a journey with us this September! Unleash your passions and reach new heights!

Our main event will introduce you to 11 remarkable members of our LAU community. Faculty, staff, alumni, and current students... our speakers will share their innermost secrets on our stage, as well as the drives and motivations which allowed them to succeed.

TEDxLAU defines passion as the drive which allows you to reach the very top! If you'd only let it!

Our events intend to showcase people who've provided an outlet for passion in their lives, better yet, people who've lived their passions.

Stay tuned for more info regarding speakers and detailed schedule.
