Many events are free and the community is encouraged to attend.
"Look unto me in every thought; doubt not, fear not." This guidance and comfort from Doctrine and Covenants 6:36 is the theme for this year's BYU Campus Education Week, one of the largest continuing education programs in the country.

BYU faculty can earn up to $120,000 through the Interdisciplinary Research Origination Awards, two-year grants that are meant to help faculty conduct research across disciplines that will lead to additional funding from external sources.
