Commitment to Excellence

A history of greatness follows TEDxRyersonU, and continues in all of our ambitions and projects. Achieving worldwide recognition, TEDxRyersonU talks have collectively accumulated over 5 million views since our start.

TEDxRyersonU also pushes to go above and beyond the standards of innovation when it comes to our role as a student group. We were the first Ryerson student group to host an event off campus, which was held at the Mattamy Athletic Center, formally Maple Leaf Square Garden. In addition, we were also the first student group to host an event at Ryerson’s Student Learning center, the first student group to have our very own magazine under the Ryerson Commerce Society, as well the first student group to live stream an event online.
