BYU-Idaho is supported by and affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and personal adherence to the principles and standards of the Church is required of each employee. Employees abide by the BYU-Idaho Honor Code, and also accept, as a condition of employment, an annual review confirming compliance with the Church and university standards. 


BYU-Idaho is an equal opportunity employer that does not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of race, national origin, age, color, sex, disability, veteran's status, or any other characteristic protected by local, state or federal laws, rules or regulations. As an educational institution affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, BYU-Idaho prefers to hire qualified members of the Church in good standing, as authorized under Title 41 CFR § 60-1.5 (a)(6).

BYU-Idaho's commitment to equal opportunity includes and applies to:

  • Recruiting, hiring, and training
  • Upgrading, promoting, and transferring
  • Disipline, layoff, and termination
  • Conditions and privileges of employment
  • Compensation and benefits

In conjunction with its commitment to equal opportunity, BYU-Idaho opposes unlawful sexual harassment and inappropriate gender-based behavior involving BYU-Idaho personnel, students, campus visitors, or vendors. Such behavior violates university policy and the CES Honor Code and may be grounds for discipline or discharge. In accordance with the Immigration Reform and Control Act, applicants selected for employment must be eligible to work in the U.S. before beginning employment; BYU-Idaho does not sponsor individuals for employment purposes.

BYU-Idaho Employment Standard (Temple Recommend) 

Recently, the Church Educational System (CES) announced that all new employees who are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will be required to hold and be worthy to hold a current temple recommend. Church members already working at CES institutions will be invited to adopt this standard voluntarily.
