Bowling Green State University has been granted a license from TED to host TEDxBGSU, an independently organized event that aims to showcase the ideas and voice of students, faculty, staff and community members at the Bowen-Thompson Student Union on March 22.

The theme of this year’s TEDxBGSU is “For the Public Good,” highlighting public good created on campus and within the Bowling Green community. The event will feature 23 speakers, including BGSU President Rodney Rogers, who will discuss his personal vision for the public good.

“This year’s lineup of activities and speakers is sure to be an exciting and impactful event for BGSU and the region,” says Kendra Lutes, event organizer and assistant director of leadership programs in the C. Raymond Marvin Center for Student Leadership and Civic Engagement at BGSU. “As always, our goal is to advance BGSU’s goal of being a public university for the public good.”

The event will also feature a group public art project, a bookstore, door prizes for attendance, and more. Organizers are encouraging people to register for the event at www.bgsu.edu/TEDx. Attendees can participate in all or just portions of the event.
