The Andrews Research Conference is organized to provide Adventist graduate students, post-docs and early career faculty (5 years post graduate school) the opportunity to share their research with one another and with Andrews University. Advanced undergraduate students and recent graduates are also invited. We particularly encourage attendance of Adventist participants from non-Adventist universities.

In May 2018, scholars in the social sciences are invited to attend and present. This includes anthropology, archaeology, community & international development, economics, political science, psychology, social work, sociology, and related disciplines.

We are pleased to hold ARC 2018 in conjunction with the annual Adventist Human-Subject Researchers Association Conference. Please come for ARC (May 15-16) and stay for AHSRA (May 17-20). Researchers who give an oral presentation at ARC are also invited to give a poster presentation at the AHSRA conference (learn more here).

REGISTRATION: Online registration is still open for those who wish to attend the presentations--click here.
