The Adult Education Research Conference (AERC) is an annual North American conference that provides a forum for adult education researchers to share their experiences and the results of their studies with students, other researchers, and practitioners from around the world.

In a sense, the AERC is also a retreat for members of the adult education community; an informal, collegial gathering where all are encouraged to enter into lively debate over the future direction of research in adult education.

Join us for the 57th Annual Adult Education Research Conference hosted by the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, North Carolina A&T State University, and Troy University, June 2-5, 2016.
