The Ohio State University is a place where innovation flourishes. With faculty, staff, students and alumni from diverse and exciting backgrounds, new ideas are ubiquitous. MAGNIFY brings these ideas to the TEDx stage by highlighting the best and brightest the Ohio State community has to offer. MAGNIFY comes from our desire to highlight groundbreaking concepts as well as scrutinize the seemingly smallest of details. In 2020, our goal is to foster an environment of hope; we want to not only look at the past with a critical lens but also visualize the possibilities of change that the future holds. With this, we will be able to further the mission of TED: ideas worth spreading.
