TEDxPurdueU 2014: Daring Greatly
March 7, 2014 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm
TEDxPurdueU, an independently organized TED event (Technology, Entertainment, Design), strives to nurture a culture of innovation by sharing groundbreaking ideas from Purdue University’s preeminent students, faculty, and alumni with the worldwide TED community. Throughout the course of the day, speakers, performers, and artists from diverse fields and schools of thought will combine with recorded TED talks to spark deep discussion and inspired reflection in the Purdue/Greater Lafayette community and beyond.
The theme of TEDxPurdueU 2014 is “Daring Greatly”, taken from the Theodore Roosevelt quote entitled “The Man in the Arena”. It urges the listener to strive towards one’s goals- undeterred by failures, obstacles, or the status quo. Speakers who have lived these words will elaborate on how they have personally or professionally “dared greatly” to produce positive change in their own lives and communities.
