Join us for an intensive weekend of dialogue and fellowship at The Westin Hotel and Convention Center in Pittsburgh, PA. This all-expenses-paid conference aims to bring together students and leading scholars to discuss the role of religion in the public square and at American universities today. Participants will have the opportunity to attend panel discussions and lectures, learn from top scholars and develop lifelong friendships. Confirmed speakers include Ryan Anderson of The Heritage Foundation and Professor Christopher Tollefsen of the University of South Carolina.
ISI and the PA Family Institute will provide hotel accommodations for all students participating in the conference on Friday night at The Westin. Please note that all on-site expenses will be covered, but participants are expected to arrange their own travel plans.
Register today! Due to limited availability, registrations will be given preference on a first-come, first-serve basis.
This is a tentative schedule, subject to change. A final schedule will be provided closer to the date of the conference.
