MORGANTOWN — March 1, nine guests will speak at WVU’s first TEDx event, including alum, professors and students.

The event begins at 9:30 a.m., on the fourth floor of Evansdale Crossing .

The theme for TEDxWVU 2018 is “Leading with Hope in a Changing World,” with the intent of inspiring attendees to create and spread positivity through their lives and communities, according to a press release.

“The American dream has always been global. This idea of the American dream has enticed millions of people from all over the world to travel to America in search of prosperity and opportunity. But in this ever-changing landscape many are questioning if the American dream even exists. We believe it does, it just means we need to rethink our homes, suburbs and communities. In this series of TEDx talks, the American dream isn’t lost, it’s just being redefined,” reads the events description.
