Sheffield is an inter-religious city with 70,000 students, and many others working in higher education. The conference setting is beautiful, secure, and well connected to airports, international rail and sea-ports. The conference cost has now been set with the cheapest rates starting from £500 inclusive of accommodation and food. We are also offering even lower scholarship rates for participants from the Majority World or for those of reduced financial means and there are grants as well; there is a reduced student rate too.

The themes of Liberty, Legacy, Leadership frame our exploration of how vibrant chaplaincies may contribute to university communities, asking:

- how academic freedom and religion and belief equalities intersect;
- what lessons must be learned from our learning and belief histories;
- what leadership styles—secular and religious—best suit our sector?
