2024 Annual Adult Education Research Conference will be hosted by the University of Georgia and held at the UGA Gwinnett Campus June 13-15, 2024.
Over the years, there have been a number of pre-conferences organized as a part of the Adult Education Research Conference.
African Diaspora Pre-Conference
The purpose of this pre-conference is to provide a forum in which graduate students can engage in research and critically dialogue about theoretical and practical issues related to the education of adults in the African Diaspora.

Asian Adult Education Conference (AAE)
The Asian Adult Education Annual Conference began in 2003. Its former name was the Asian Diaspora Adult Education Pre-conference in conjunction with Adult Education Research Conference (AERC). The steady development over the past 20 years has made it the leading pre-conference in the North American Adult Education Research Annual Conference, actively promoting and co-constructing the academic development of North American adult education.
The purpose of the Asian Adult Education Conference (AAE) is to provide a platform for academic exchange among researchers and scholars in adult and continuing education, as well as higher education, from the East, West, and Rest, especially those who are interested in conducting research related to Asian and Asian Diaspora adult education theory and practice. It seeks to promote mutual learning, enhance shared understanding, and stimulate academic viewpoints and dialogue from various perspectives from global educators.

Bullying, Incivility, and Violence in Adult, Higher, Continuing, and Professional Education Pre-Conference
The purpose of the Bullying, Incivility, and Violence in Adult, Higher, Continuing, and Professional Education Pre-Conference is to explore research on bullying, incivility, and violence and gain a better understanding of those malicious behaviors so that adult educators and practitioners can create actions to combat and try to eliminate bullying, incivility, and violence.

There are two awards given at the Annual Adult Education Research Conference.
The Phyllis Cunningham Award for Social Justice
The Phyllis Cunningham Award for Social Justice was established at the Adult Education Research Conference in 1996. The award celebrates the contributions Dr. Phyllis Cunningham has made to the field of Adult Education. Her life-long commitment to equity and social justice set the standards for our field and are constant reminders of the democratic ideals set forth in Adult Education literature.
Graduate Student Research Award
The Graduate Student Research Award is designed to encourage, support, and recognize students’ research contributions at the Adult Education Research Conference.
