BYU-Idaho faculty members are not only experts in their respective fields, but they also put teaching and mentoring students as their top priority. That translates into more face-to-face time and individual help for you because they care most about helping you learn and succeed.

David A. Bednar

“The hallmark of this institution is readily apparent when visitors come to our campus and say, 'I can't believe how student-focused the faculty are, the staff are, all of the employees are.'... Here at BYU-Idaho, the students are and always will be the focus of everything we do.”

Elder David A. Bednar, BYU-Idaho President 1997-2004

“BYU-Idaho will continue to be teaching oriented. Effective teaching and advising will be the primary responsibilities of its faculty, who are committed to academic excellence.”

Gordon B. Hinckley, Announcement of BYU-Idaho, June 21, 2000
