What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx.
TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
Our event is called TEDxUCR, where x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDxUCR event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

Has covid-19 affected the event?
Out of concern for the safety of our community, speakers, and attendees, we have decided to postpone the event. However, our team will continue to work hard in order to bring Veritas to life.
When is the event?
We have postponed the original event date, May 22, to the winter. While we do not have a confirmed date, rest assured that we will keep all of our platforms updated.
what does veritas mean?
Veritas is Latin for truth. In our current climate, the truth can be easily twisted and we seek to spread ideas that have a solid foundation and are worth spreading.
what does tedxucr do?
We seek to enrich student life with a platform to encourage ideas worth spreading through TED talks. TEDxUCR is not limited to one category or subject, promoting interdisciplinary ideas from varying perspectives.
How often does TEdxucr hold events?
While our main TEDx event comes annually, we will also host more student-focused events like our Global Perspectives event, in collaboration with ASUCR ISC, throughout the year.
Will the event be filmed and posted on youtube?
