Senior fellow at the Brookings Institution discusses new book with Wheatley Institute
In July 2022, the Wheatley Institute was again a co-sponsor of a EuroSeminar, this time in the Czech countryside near Prague. The official theme of the 2022 Euro Seminar program was “Family in the Wilderness: Covid Aftermath, Family Dynamics, Individual Belonging.” Discussions focused on healing and understanding in the circumstances and contexts that members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Europe face. More than forty young professionals, university students, and presenters gathered from over a dozen countries around Europe to learn from one another about these issues.
The Wheatley Institute acknowledges with sadness the passing of Kate Holbrook and we express our condolences to her family and friends who feel her loss keenly. Kate’s inspiring capacity to convey the experiences and values of Latter-day Saint women was highlighted in a lecture she gave at the 2017 conference “My Grace is Sufficient: Latter-day Reflections”. The conference was co-sponsored by the Wheatley Institute, Religious Education, and the Religious Studies Center at Brigham Young University.
After COVID-19 delays, the educators involved in the 2019 Civic Education Program were able to complete their experience with the Wheatley Institute.

Judge Thomas Griffith, a Wheatley Institute Fellow, played an extraordinary role today in introducing Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson at her Supreme Court confirmation hearing. Judge Griffith’s introduction was a stirring defense of the Rule of Law and democracy as he showed support of Judge Jackson’s nomination.
