PROVO, Utah Campus Education Week will be held on the BYU Provo campus Aug. 21-25. Now in its 84th year, the program is one of the largest adult education events in the United States. Last year more than 20,000 participants came from 49 states in the USA and from 12 other countries.
This year's theme is Seek Learning (Doctrine and Covenants 88: 118). Neil Carlile, director of Campus Education Week, said the theme was chosen because "it speaks to both a daily and a lifelong pursuit. If we follow this invitation, we will never stop learning."
This year's program will feature 237 presenters, more than 1,100 classes, special evening performances, a youth dance, and other activities. A wide variety of topics will be addressed, including: family and marriage, health and fitness, finance, religious education, self-improvement, science, and youth interests.
Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf of the Quorum of the Twelve will be the Campus Education Week devotional speaker on Tuesday, Aug. 22. The devotional, at 11 a.m., is open to the general public.
Individuals can register for the week, a single day, or part of a day. Detailed information about Campus Education Week is accessible at educationweek.byu.edu and in the class schedule booklet that is available by calling (801) 422-2087.
