MAYDAY! Peace Conference

The annual MAYDAY! Peace Conference was established at Gustavus in 1981. It was founded and is sustained by the generosity of Florence and the late Raymond Sponberg of North Mankato, MN.

The Conference occurs on the last Wednesday in April or the first Wednesday in May each year. Classes are suspended or shortened so that students and faculty may attend the 10 a.m. opening convocation and keynote in the Chapel, the afternoon keynote and workshops, and the closing reception. The MAYDAY! Peace Conference is open to the public, and no fees or reservations are required to attend.

Past conference themes include:
