Thousands take part in weeklong conference

More than 24,000 people gathered Aug. 14-18 on BYU's Provo campus for the university's annual Campus Education Week. During the weeklong conference, more than 200 faculty members taught 1,030 classes on a variety of subjects, including self-improvement, family relations, religious education, history, science, youth interests and literature.

In addition, 16 education week presentations were telecast to thousands of Church members via the Church's satellite system in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean and parts of Mexico; and in Utah on KBYU-TV.

Now in its 78th year, Campus Education Week has become what is believed to be the largest single-event adult continuing education program in the United States. The conference is jointly sponsored by the Church Educational System and BYU's Division of Continuing Education.
