The Insider: Behind the Scenes of the TEDxTU Event

021216 TedX730

Every year Tulane University hosts CEOs, slam poets, student activists and filmmakers all under one roof at one of its most popular events of the year: TEDxTU. This huge event is put on by an entirely student-run team. Right now the group is in the midst of its “speaker development season,” which will last up until the March 10 event.

TEDxTU is hosted in the style of TED conferences, and for such a presentation-oriented event, the quality of the speakers is everything. One of the biggest and most rewarding jobs of the team, according to the TEDxTU president Caroline Campbell, is to nominate, select and then work with speakers on their TEDx talks.

This year’s speakers range from a civic design director who specializes in creating public art with a social impact, to a Tulane student who has started her own program to help young adults reenter society and the workforce after incarceration.
