What is TEDxLowell?
Upon the conception of the Honors Ambassador Council – formerly the Honors Ambassador Program – the following mission statement was made:
"The Honors Ambassador Program at UMass Lowell is an entrepreneurial student-run organization at the University of Massachusetts Lowell dedicated to promoting and advancing high-value educational experiences at the University, in its new Honors College, and around Lowell. The program holds events for prospective students, creates new courses and conferences, leads mentorship programs, and interacts with community organizations."
Our first ambitious project was TEDxLowell. This event was held in April 2014 at the United Teen Equality Center's (UTEC) renovated church in downtown Lowell, MA, which is the oldest LEED Platinum Certified building in the country.
