Are you (or is someone you know) exploring a unique perspective that’s promoting new insight?
Pursuing extraordinary projects right here in our local community?  
Is there a compelling story that can change how we interpret and affect our world?  
Does the idea need to be shared to grow?


We measure proposals by the power of the idea and if the TEDxUoPacific platform can help propel the idea forward. The speaker presenting the idea needs to have credibility in the space and be actively working on the idea, as well as have the time to work with us to do a compelling talk. (Fair warning, it is a lot of work, there are rounds of coaching, and reviews, all with the intent of helping you hit a home run when you walk out on the Faye Spanos Hall stage.) We also seek experiences and consider performance an integral part of the day.

We are seeking proposals from the University of the Pacific community and beyond for our TEDxUoPacific events. If you, or someone you know well, is doing something profound that’s appropriate for a TEDx talk, please fill out the form below. While we will review all submissions, we are a small team and cannot respond to each proposal.

For speaker guidelines on what we think makes for a great talk, please see the suggestions in this guide.
