BYU-Hawaii Hosts Its First Education Week

With the theme “Education: In Search of Truth,” BYU-Hawai’i is sponsoring its first Education Week July 31 through Aug. 3, 1996. Patterned after Campus Education Week at BYU’s Provo campus, the Hawai’ian version will be the “same program, different location, different size, with a luau,” said one conference organizer.

The featured devotional speakers will be LDS Church leaders Elder Neal A. Maxwell, Elder Robert E. Wells, and Sister Chieko N. Okazaki. Presenters from the faculties of BYU-Provo and BYU-Hawai’i, as well as other invited speakers, will teach classes on subjects ranging from gospel topics to family and marriage relationships to Hawai’i, Polynesia, and Asia.

As part of the activities, BYU-Hawai’i President Eric Shumway will host a luau. Tours of the Polynesian Cultural Center and other Hawai’ian attractions will also be available.

The conference is open to anyone age 14 years and older. The application deadline for campus housing is April 1, 1996. For registration and other information, call the BYU-Hawai’i Division of Continuing Education at (808) 293-3780.
