BYU: A Community of Learners and Lifters

"This is a vibrant and determined community of learners and lifters. Students, faculty, and staff here are driven by a desire and a strength of mind to learn as fast as they can.

"Their confidence that they can and must improve springs from their faith that they are children of God—who knows all truth and will prosper their efforts to find it. And it comes from a faith that by the Spirit of Christ they can recognize what is good and true.

"It goes beyond learning for ourselves. The vision at the founding was that all here will seek truth not for themselves alone but will also distribute what they have learned to bless others. There is a sign at the edge of this campus: 'Enter to learn; go forth to serve.' That is more than a slogan; it is a main part of the founding vision."

- Henry B. Eyring, first counselor in the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
