Our Mission

“​Verily I say, men should be anxiously engaged in a good cause, and do many things of their own free will, and bring to pass much righteousness."
- Doctrine and Covenants 58:27

The mission of the Office of Civic Engagement is to provide students and faculty with the appropriate skills and meaningful opportunities to become engaged in their respective communities. We seek to promote civic service and to encourage everyone to find ways to solve the important problems around them.

We add value to an undergraduate's educational experiences by adding specific training in leadership and organizational skills, as well as practical hands-on opportunities. We expose students to practitioners through both classroom interactions and their own off-campus experiences in civic engagement.

BYU Civic Engagement invites all students to heed the call to "Enter to Learn, Go Forth to Serve."
