During TEDxUniversityofNevada 2016, the Nevada Wolf Shop will host a pop-up store, where these items will also be available for purchase at the Pioneer Theater. The Nevada Wolf Shop at the University of Nevada, Reno is student-owned and operated. All dollars spent at the Wolf Shop are used to help fund student-run organizations or groups within the community that support our student population. Contributions like these are made possible through people who believe in our vision that serving and supporting students is the foremost priority at the University.

Participants can follow the list of speakers on Twitter by subscribing to the Speakers 2016 list.
