The University of Idaho challenges what we know and pursues a future filled with possibility and adventure. The Vandals’ desire to explore what’s around the corner also embodies who we are at TEDx. This year’s theme, “Take Flight” is a bold reflection of the explorer spirit in all of us. 

Together through sharing and learning, we exemplify a trailblazing state of being and entrepreneurial spirit while embracing our roots and the contributions of multiple cultures, identities and perspectives. We spread ideas and engage in thoughts and actions that are environmentally and fiscally sustainable, all while enhancing our scientific, economic, social, legal and cultural standing. We develop critical thinking skills that help us discover solutions to the most complex issues of our time.

As Idaho’s premier research university, U of I is committed to creating new ideas worth spreading, charting a course toward a better future for all of us. The guest speakers at TEDxBoise 2019 share that vision. Together, we’re discovering new paths, exploring the skies and accomplishing great things.
