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.

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.
