Balanced Development

”All instruction, programs, and services at BYU, including a wide variety of extracurricular experiences, should make their own contribution toward the balanced development of the total person.” —The Mission of Brigham Young University

Donations to the Inspiring Learning Initiative help thousands of students have “total-person” BYU experiences every year. In fact, since January 2017 more than 46,000 students have had inspiring learning experiences because of donor support for this initiative.
