INSPIRING LEARNING is what Brigham Young University is all about; the phrase summarizes the university’s mission “to assist individuals in their quest for perfection and eternal life.”
The flagship educational institution of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, BYU is a top-tier university where faculty research is conducted to enhance student learning.
Known for its world-class teaching, and its beautiful mountain location, and its bright students, many of whom have lived outside the U.S., BYU develops students of faith, intellect, and character who continue to learn and serve others throughout their lives.
Through donations, generous alumni and friends provide students with experiences such as mentored learning, teaching assistantships, research assistantships, internships, study abroad, work-study, and other student aid. Donors also provide support for additional board-approved programs including BYU Athletics and BYU Broadcasting.
“Donors make the university and the BYU experience better for our students,” says President Kevin J Worthen. “BYU is grateful for all the support it receives.”
BYU’s Inspiring Learning Initiative lets you help more students have more life-changing, and world-changing, BYU experiences.Donate to BYU
