Description

Have you ever wanted to give a TEDxTalk but not had the opportunity to do so? The Residence Hall Association wants to change that! Join us for a week of TWUxRES Talks, where will we be showcasing videos on 4 different tracks of topics: Diversity and Inclusion, Leadership, Curiosity, and Passion. Please see below for descriptions of each track.

Diversity and Inclusion

This track is focused on embracing our community's differing identities, spotlighting marginalized voices, and allowing freedom to explore a variety of topics related to race, gender, sexuality, language variation, and other identity groups across campus. This track also includes a social justice focus if you are interested in presenting on social justice topics.

Leadership

This track is focused on leadership training and development for our residential community. If you feel that you have great insight into certain leadership traits, activities, or if you are inspired by a leadership philosophy, this is the track for you! We want our community to learn, engage, and grow as leaders with the presentations submitted under this track.

Curiosity

This track is focused on exploring the unanswered questions and seemingly random topics our community thinks about. These can range from personal narratives to general research. This would be a great track to present any academic research you have completed in one of your classes, to touch on a subject that you know a lot of information about, or to really present on anything that piques your curiosity.

Passion

This track is focused on providing a space for our community to divulge information about their passions. This can be in the form of teaching others, giving a personal narrative about finding your passion, or even speaking about a lack of passion. This track truly allows you to explore the things that matter to you and to the TWU community.
