Faith

BYU seeks to develop students of faith, intellect, and character. Students at BYU are taught the truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ, which gospel encourages the pursuit of all truth. President Gordon B. Hinckley said of BYU:

Here we are doing what is not done in any other major university of which I am aware. We are demonstrating that faith in the Almighty can accompany and enrich scholarship in the secular.
