Tufts Idea Exchange (TEX) is “a one-day forum hosted jointly by OneWorld and the Institute for Global Leadershipâ€™s Synaptic Scholars program. Ten speakers chosen from amongst the students, faculty and alumni of Tufts University will each have 10 minutes to tell you about a brilliant idea that theyâ€™ve had.Â Â There are no limitations on subject or field.”
Rita Bennett-Chew (A’12), a member of the TEX organizing team, states:
â€œIâ€™m excited to be working on TEX because I believe in the spread of ideas and collaboration between various humanitarian groups in our increasingly connected world.
The deadline to apply to be a panelist at TEX is March 11th, and applications can be completed online.
