Published: Friday, April 8, 2022

The Oklahoma State University Center for Family Resilience is hosting its annual Chautauqua Conference on Family Resilience in partnership with the Center for Africana Studies on Friday, May 13 at OSU-Tulsa from 8:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. in the OSU-Tulsa Conference Center. 

Originating in the late 1800s, Chautauquas prioritized education through gathering teachers, musicians, specialists and more in one place to share their expertise with the community. The annual Chautauqua Conference hosted at OSU-Tulsa mirrors the original spirit of the convention, gathering researchers, service providers and policymakers to speak on a common theme.

This year’s theme is “Identity as Resilience: Strengths Based Approaches to Development Among Youth, Family and Community.” 

Five speakers will highlight this theme in their unique area of expertise. Topics for the presentations include African American family resiliency with racial trauma, American Indian identity and cultural resiliency, mental health and others.

Early bird registration is open through April 30. The registration fee, including breakfast and lunch from Panera Bread, is $55 for public participants and $25 for students. For those interested, continuing education credits are available. To register, visit For more information, contact
