TEDxUChicago is a local, independently organized event at The University of Chicago that strives to re-create the unique experience found at TED, where the world´s leaders, thinkers and doers congregate to share what they are most passionate about. At its core, the fundamental goal of TED and The University of Chicago is to foster and spear great ideas. We aim to provide a platform where the smartest thinkers, greatest visionaries, and most fascinating teachers will be inspired and will have the opportunity to inspire others. Our conference will be held at The University of Chicago Campus on Sunday, April 29th 2013 from 9am to 6pm, and will be centered on the theme: Theory in Action. The diverse group of students, faculty, and alumni present will be able to learn from one another, both as speakers and attendees, and will leave the conference driven to creatively improve our collective future
