Moral imagination is the ability to renew the world, to create new horizons, to set aright wrongs, and to imagine new possibilities. But in our increasingly consumer-driven culture, moral imagination is not a consumer good. Nor is it something you can master through rote learning. Rather, knowledge, virtue, art, and science combine to create the moral imagination of a community. Where do you find these ingredients in one place? In our liberal arts colleges and universities—the boldest incubators of moral imagination in the United States.

Since joining Swarthmore's community as president in 2009, Rebecca Chopp has focused her work on the College's role in cultivating a global intellectual community that will nurture innovative and ethical leaders in a variety of fields and endeavors.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
