BYU Education Week 2017
Originating in 1922, BYU Education Week is the largest continuing education program in the country.
One week during August, the program utilizes the campus of Brigham Young University (Provo, Utah) to present more than 1,000 classes on education, religion, marriage, family relations, health, history, genealogy, science, youth interests, and many other areas.
People from more than a dozen countries—located on four continents—and 49 states registered. About 20,000 people attend
This year’s conference theme comes from Doctrine and Covenants 50:24, “He that receiveth light, and continueth in God, receiveth more light.”
