In mid-November, Tufts Ideas Exchange (TEX) held its one-day forum in order to jump start unique and thought provoking discussion on campus. With its optimistic mission statement, TEX aims to “create an ideal environment for ideas to thrive and be shared.” Alisha Sett, A12 delved into the topic of the the growing and cumbersome power of large corporations in America, and how this power influences the government and by extension each one of our lives. Watch Sett’s TEX presentation below:

Tufts Idea Exchange (TEX) is “a one-day forum hosted jointly by OneWorld and the Institute for Global Leadership’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 they’ve had. There are no limitations on subject or field.”
Rita Bennett-Chew (A’12), a member of the TEX organizing team, states:
“I’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.
