TEDxSLC is organized by members of the Sarah Lawrence community who believe that our students and faculty are amongst the foremost thinkers and visionaries of the day. Sarah Lawrence education empowers young minds to articulate the truly bold, innovative ideas desperately needed in the world today.
Speakers were selected from a large pool of students, faculty and staff through a juried process of written and live presentations of their ideas. Our sincere thanks to everyone who participated and to the whole community for offering us your passion and insights.

The most recent TEDxSLC took place on April 24, 2013.

Sarah Lawrence College

Sarah Lawrence is a small coeducational liberal arts college located in Bronxville, NY that recognizes the creative and performing arts as integral to a liberal arts education. Our mission is to graduate world citizens who are diverse in every definition of the word, who take intellectual and creative risks, who cross disciplinary boundaries, and who are able to sustain exceptional academic discipline within a framework of humanistic values and concern for community. Our unique educational practices provide our students with the opportunity to study intensively in small classes, to engage in independent research, and to spend unparalleled amounts of time working one-on-one with an exceptional faculty of scholars and artists, creating a tailored academic program of students' own design. Our goal is to instill a lifelong intellectual curiosity and nimbleness, as well as the confidence and entrepreneurial spirit to embrace a broad range of personal, professional and creative pursuits. We thus prepare students to think and act independently so that they will tackle the problems of, and thrive in, a complex and rapidly evolving world.
