The mission of TEDxUniPittsburgh is to share ideas among the various universities in Pittsburgh. Uni can be interpreted as meaning University and as meaning One.
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 TEDxUniPittsburgh, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxUniPittsburgh events, TEDTalks video and live speakers 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.
