The conferences will feature more than 30 oral research presentations in the fields of education, family, health, industry, justice, media, politics, and sexuality. This year's focus can lead to a deeper understanding of critical social, educational, and religious challenges facing our church, schools, and the wider community. Several of the presentations will consider the impact of COVID-19 and identify important lessons learned.
The Andrews Research Conference will be held May 17–18, 2021.
