Event details

TEDx Pittsburg State University will be held March 26 in the Dotty and Bill Miller Theater in the Bicknell Family Center for the Arts.  

The inspiration to host a TEDx event on campus began with Courtney Blankenship, a senior in political science and communication at the time. Called “Diversity in Our World,” the first event featured 10 diverse speakers that included a high school senior who has received acclaim for her work in helping girls apply technology to entrepreneurial and global issues, a pastor who wrote a statewide sabbatical policy adopted by churches across Kansas, and a first-generation African American college student who grew up in Los Angeles and now is an advisor to minority college students. 

Organizers Sydney Anselmi, director of Community Engagement, and University Professor Mark Johnson, Technology & Workforce Learning, have assembled an equally diverse slate of speakers this year.
