"I understand that those who attend TEDx events do so in a spirit of curiosity, open-mindedness, respect and tolerance, thereby enabling constructive conversation and allowing guests and TEDx speakers to be more open than they might otherwise be. I confirm that I will honor these values."

All TEDx events are run and operated by passionate volunteers.

Who is TEDxUCIrvine? 

TEDxUCIrvine is an event curated and executed by passionate UC Irvine students. It was founded on the belief that sharing the knowledge on campus can inspire action throughout the community. Once a year TEDxUCIrvine gives our campus the opportunity to showcase our talents, achievements and ideas on TED’s worldwide platform. We strive to ignite the curiosity, passion, and wonder in the interaction amongst the different disciplines on campus. In the spirit of TED, we aim to find “ideas worth spreading” within UC Irvine and to stimulate dialogue in the greater Irvine community. We are laying the foundation for a collaborative space for UC Irvine’s thinkers and doers. A place where these individuals can utilize their diversity, come together, and bring light to new ideas that foster a different way of thinking.

What is the refund policy?

Refunds will not be granted.
