FREE Undergraduate Student Conference Saturday, January 19th (Students can apply at: sforce.co/2Qd7t1x – by January 16th)
“Becoming Whole: From Secular Learning to Religious Living” – a free all-day undergraduate student conference will be held on January 19th, in Provo, at BYU’s Gordon B. Hinckley Alumni and Visitors Center.
Let’s take a lesson from some of our dedicated Utah faculty and learn about how education ought to enhance our religious experience, and how our religious experience should enhance and direct our academic and professional contributions. Our speakers will be Dr. Ralph Hancock (Brigham Young University), Dr. Harrison Kleiner (Utah State University), and Dr. Carl Scott (Utah Valley University). The theme of each of their lectures will be on how a secular book/author of their choice has increased their understanding of a foundational principle of their religious denomination, and how this experience inspires their actions and beliefs. Join us at Gordon B. Hinckley Alumni and Visitors Center on January 19th, and get to know some of our brilliant students and faculty across Utah and Idaho that are also striving to understand how to cultivate virtue, personal responsibility, and a greater sense of justice.
