BYU Education Week — one of the largest continuing education programs of its kind — is held annually in August on the university’s campus in Provo and offers more than 1,000 classes on education, religion, marriage, family history, communication and more. Last year, BYU Education Week was virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic and more than 50 presentations were offered online.

This year’s theme is “Looking Forward With Faith: Having Our Hearts Knit Together in Unity and Love” (see Mosiah 18:21). BYU strongly encourages, but does not require, COVID-19 vaccinations, and masks are welcome, but also not required, according to the BYU Education Week website.
