Modeled after the famous TED Talks, Learning Community students and faculty will be selected in advance to speak at this event about their stories in short, entertaining, thought-provoking talks which will reflect the diversity and resilience displayed in our collective and individual experiences. 

Anyone part of UConn's Learning Communities ecosystem is invited to apply to speak at LC TALKS, including student members and leaders, graduate students, professional staff, and faculty.

Thank you to everyone who attended LC TALKS 2021!
