Work Environment & Appreciation

University Mission Statement


Brigham Young University-Idaho was founded and is supported and guided by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Its mission is to develop disciples of Jesus Christ who are leaders in their homes, the Church, and their communities. The university does this by:

  • Building testimonies of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and encouraging living its principles.
  • Providing a quality education for students of diverse interests and abilities.
  • Preparing students for lifelong learning, for employment, and for their roles as citizens and parents.
  • Maintaining a wholesome academic, cultural, social, and spiritual environment.


BYU-Idaho's strong sense of purpose is shaped by the insight and direction of visionary leaders. Through the inspiration that comes to BYU-Idaho presidents and leaders of our sponsoring institution, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we receive the guidance that helps us understand our mission and what we must do to make it a reality.
