Register for TEDxUGA 2023: Roots!

 TEDxUGA 2023 | Friday, March 31st at 7pm | Morton Theatre

Join the University of Georgia for the 10th annual TEDxUGA. Centuries of students and scholars have grown a vast and intertwined network of research and scholarship. The passions and actions that inspire this network are sometimes unseen, unheard, and untamed. But the results are powerful and ever-reaching. At the University of Georgia, we plant seeds of research and scholarship every day. And now at TEDxUGA 2023, we will explore how these seeds have taken root and flourished into ideas with the power to change the world.

For more information about the event, presenters, and more, please visit the 2023 Event and Team pages.

In order to make TEDxUGA accessible to all UGA students, registrants have the opportunity to sponsor a student. TEDxUGA partners with several on-campus organizations to distribute student sponsorship tickets. Tickets are distributed to students based on financial need and interest. In an effort to respect the privacy of recipients, all student sponsorships are anonymous.

Since we value the opportunity for students to be a part of our live event, sponsorships are now available for purchase for TEDxUGA 2023! Sponsored tickets are available at the student ticket rate of $15. To sponsor a student, select Sponsor a Student as a registration option. The student sponsorship will be added to your total, and the ticket will be distributed on your behalf.
