Elder Uchtdorf to speak at in-person BYU Education Week this summer

by | May 18, 2021

Brigham Young University has announced its plans for Education Week this year. According to its website, the proceedings will be held in-person on BYU campus from August 16 through August 20, and it will be one of the university’s “first events inviting people from across the country to gather on campus again after the pandemic,” The Daily Universe reports.

Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf will be the keynote speaker for the event on Tuesday, August 17. The theme for this year’s Education Week is inspired by a scripture from Mosiah 18:21, “Having our hearts knit together in unity and love.”

BYU Education Week began in 1922 and “is one of the largest continuing education programs of its type,” the website reads. Available to the general public, it offers more than 1,000 classes from more than 230 presenters. These presenters include BYU faculty, seminary and institute teachers, and other professionals who are experts in their field.

Registration for the event begins on June 2, with early bird rates available until August 14. In the event that Education Week is canceled due to COVID-19, full refunds will be processed.
