Board University's in-person seminars focus on all aspects of wholeness — spiritual, health, financial, and vocational. At once inspirational and practical, these educational opportunities are offered at no cost to participants, in locations around the country. Board University has something for everyone — whether you are a plan member, retiree, spouse, or surviving spouse.
Out of concern for the health and safety of our participants and presenters, all Board University in-person seminars are canceled through the end of 2020.
