The Friends Association for Higher Education will hold its 2017 conference at member institution Guilford College in Greensboro, North Carolina, June 15-18. We invite you to join with other Friends educators from colleges, universities and study centers globally for an invigorating time together at Guilford.
Our conference theme is “Global Quakerism,” to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Friends World Committee for Consultation convening at Guilford.
We also will consider a disciplinary focus this year on “Quakers, Politics, and Economics.” in preparation for the fifth volume in FAHE’s book series “Quakers and the disciplines.” The editors, David Ross of Bryn Mawr College, Tom Head of George Fox University and Michael Snarr of Wilmington College invite proposals for topics for volume 5 that can be presented at the 2017 FAHE conference.
We are currently accepting proposals for sessions, workshops, panel discussions and papers for the conference. We welcome topics that address either theme, or other concerns in Quaker higher education.
