Welcome back to Provo!
This year’s Education Week theme is “Looking Forward With Faith: Having Our Hearts Knit Together in Unity and Love” (see Mosiah 18:21).
BYU strongly encourages, but does not require, COVID-19 vaccinations, and masks are welcome, but also not required, according to the BYU Education Week website.
In 2020, BYU Education Week was virtual due to the pandemic and more than 50 presentations were offered online.
August 13 Update: Consistent with the recent message of The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (https://newsroom.churchofjesuschrist.org/article/first-presidency-message-covid-19-august-2021), BYU urges all employees, students and guests to wear masks indoors at BYU when physical distancing is not possible. This includes those attending BYU Education Week (August 16–20). For more information about BYU’s COVID-19 safety protocol visit coronavirus.BYU.edu.
