TEDxSUNY Cortland

2024 Theme: Reclamation

TEDxSUNY Cortland is the university’s local, independent program to highlight interesting speakers sharing big ideas. It is sanctioned by TED, the non-profit foundation that runs speaking events across the planet, featuring insights related to technology, education, design and a host of other fields. TEDx was created to enable communities and universities to create their own self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

SUNY Cortland’s annual TEDx conference seeks to bring together a handful of inspiring and visionary thinkers made up of faculty, staff, students, alumni and the surrounding Upstate New York regions for an evening of shared ideas. The inaugural TEDxSUNY Cortland debuted in the spring of 2023, with 10 speakers, including three faculty members and a Cortland resident. SUNY Cortland and Central New York offers fertile ground for independent thought, groundbreaking research and insightful experience. Whether you are interested in sharing your ideas at Cortland’s event or widening your intellectual horizons as an audience member, you are invited.

Join us on April 9 at 6 p.m. in Old Main Brown Auditorium and engage with big ideas from brilliant speakers from throughout Central New York about how we can all reclaim our hope, health and humanity together.
