2012 Event

TEDxBrownUniversity 2012: Life, Learning, and Liberal Education took place on October 20, 2012, at the Granoff Center, Brown University, Providence, RI and was live-streamed online.

We all admire the type--those visionary doers and thinkers who, by approaching an old problem from a new perspective, change their respective fields forever. But what does it take to become a game-changer in business or politics, medicine or the movie industry?

This event brought back to campus a group of notable Brown alumni whose liberal education experiences have influenced their intellectual, personal, and professional development in unexpected ways—and who have, as a result, changed their worlds for the better.
