Application deadline extended for TEDxSUNY Cortland

Application deadline extended for TEDxSUNY Cortland

02/06/2024 

Last spring, three faculty members helped establish a new university tradition by sharing their thoughts on the Old Main Brown Auditorium stage during the inaugural, 10-speaker TEDxSUNY Cortland conference. 

This spring, organizers hope to have even better representation from the Cortland community when the second annual TEDxSUNY Cortland takes place on Tuesday, April 9, from 6 to 8 p.m.  

Faculty, staff, students, alumni and community members are encouraged to apply. The deadline to submit a presentation idea has been extended to Thursday, Feb. 15. This year’s TEDxSUNY Cortland application is available online 

The theme for this official TEDx event is “Reclamation.” The review committee is looking for creative presentations about how we can all reclaim hope, health and humanity. Details are available on the new TEDxSUNY Cortland website 

“I am always amazed at the stories and the big ideas that our community has to share,” said SUNY Cortland President Erik J. Bitterbaum.

The insights, vision and experiences of all members of the SUNY Cortland community are important, so please consider whether you have something to say about reclaiming something that’s been lost. Applicants outside the campus community who live in the Central New York/Upstate region will also be considered.  

This is an opportunity to share your big ideas with folks from throughout Central New York — and beyond. The presentations of all selected speakers will be featured on the official TEDx YouTube channel 

Last year’s inaugural campus TEDx event was a huge success. You can view the 2023 TEDx presentations on SUNY Cortland’s website. 

TEDx is the localized version of the globally focused TED conferences featuring talks that explore big ideas about science, culture, tech, education and creativity. TEDx presentations follow the same format and spirit. Whether it’s a research interest, an innovative program or a way of looking at things from a new perspective, the Red Dragon community offers a rich universe of possibilities.
