Our Mission

BYU 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. The BYU men's volleyball team extends this mission by providing its student-athletes with an educational, spiritual and athletic experience to be outstanding ambassadors for the University, and the Church throughout their lives.

This Is BYU

The 1875 establishment of the Brigham Young Academy offered an academically stimulating and gospel-oriented educated to 29 students. The one-acre school grounds presided over by Kar G. Maeser have since developed into 560 acres and 97 academic buildings. The foundation of the University thrives with the fourfold focus of being 1) spritually strengthening, 2) intellectually enlarging, 3) character building, leading to 4) lifelong learning and service.

Brigham Young University provides an outstanding education in an atmosphere consistent with the standards and principles of its sponsor, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
