Family life professor Larry J. Nelson to deliver annual Cutler lecture Oct. 24

Larry J. Nelson, professor of family life at Brigham Young University, will deliver the 49th annual Virginia F. Cutler Lecture titled “Flourishing and Floundering During the Transition to Adulthood” Thursday, Oct. 24, at 7 p.m. in 250 Spencer W. Kimball Tower.

The School of Family Life in the College of Family, Home and Social Sciences will host this annual lecture which is open to all those interested. Admission is free.

Nelson joined BYU in 2000 as an associate professor of marriage, family and human development. His professional affiliation includes the Society for the Study of Emerging Adulthood, International Society for the Study of Behavioral Development and Society for Research in Child Development.

In 2012, Nelson was named one of the “The Best 300 Professors” by Princeton Review and Random House.

Virginia Cutler, a BYU alumna and former faculty member, left an endowment to the university making the lecture series possible. The support of her descendants has continued to make the series a successful forum for discussion on family development topics.
