Brigham Young University seeks to develop students of faith, intellect, and character who have the skills and the desire to continue learning and to serve others throughout their lives.
Established in 1875, the university provides an outstanding education in an atmosphere consistent with the ideals and principles of its sponsor, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Known for its academically minded and internationally experienced student body, its world-class teaching and its beautiful mountain location, BYU is also recognized for its extensive language programs, talented performing arts ensembles, outstanding sports programs and devotion to combining solid scholarship with the principles of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.
Renowned for its strong athletic programs, specifically the numerous notable quarterbacks to have come out of the university, BYU continues to be a feeder for more than just NFL Football teams. With its Top-Ranked Accounting program and Nationally Recognized programs in Entrepreneurship, Management, Public Relations, and Law it's no wonder that recruiters ranked BYU Graduates #11 among all U.S. Universities.
And BYU students are known for more than just exceptional achievement on the field and in the classroom. The University maintains a rigorous Honor code that establishes high standards of grooming and conduct. In fact, last year BYU was named the Nation's #1 Stone-Cold Sober Campus for the 17th year in a row! It's really no secret why each year the biggest companies in the country, and in the world, flock to BYU--it's the students.

The fusion of academic and hands-on learning is referred to as "engaged learning." Along with the institution's long-rooted commitment to serving the needs of the community, UVU's emphasis on engaged learning led to its classification as "community engaged" by the Carnegie Foundation.

At UVU, students participate in internships, community service and curriculum that includes the "how" along with the "what" and "why."
