May 16-18, 2022

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 and creative scholarship 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.

For ARC 2022, scholars in the STEM are invited to attend and present. We will accommodate a limited number of virtual presentations. Topics in all areas of pure and applied science, such as technology, engineering, and math, are welcome.

Thank you for helping us spread the word about this conference for early career researchers and creative scholars. "Early career" includes those who are advanced undergraduates through those who are no more than five years beyond completing their terminal degree (MFA, PhD, etc.).
