BYU President's Report

We each play an important role in the BYU community. As disciples of Jesus Christ and members of the BYU community, we must be committed to fostering a culture of unity, love, and belonging. We must seek for and be led by the Holy Ghost—not just in religious education classes, not just in family life classes, but even in statistics classes, research labs, and work- spaces. Everywhere on campus we want students, faculty, and staff who are “press[ing] forward, feasting upon the word of Christ” (2 Nephi 31:20). To this end, we seek to hire and support BYU employees who intentionally build faith in Jesus Christ and desire to strengthen their own and others’ testimonies of the restored gospel.

If we are to be successful in fulfilling BYU’s mission, we must be unique, we must differentiate BYU, and we must embrace our mission— especially the spiritual development of our stu- dents. As we enlarge our influence and move toward fulfilling our mission, BYU will become the university of the Lord that President Spencer Kimball so beautifully foretold in his second century address.
