EDUCATION SYSTEM HONOR CODE
Young University, Brigham Young University-Hawaii, Brigham
Young University-Idaho, and LDS Business
College exist to provide an
education in an atmosphere consistent with the ideals and principles of The
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. That atmosphere is created and
preserved through conduct that reflects those ideals and principles. Members of
the faculty, administration, staff, and student body at BYU, BYU-Hawaii,
BYU-Idaho, and LDS
Business College are selected and retained from
among individuals who voluntarily live the principles of the gospel of Jesus
Christ. Observance of such is a specific condition of employment and admission.
Those individuals who are not members of The Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-day Saints are also expected to maintain the same standards of conduct.
All who represent BYU-Idaho are to maintain the highest
standards of honor, integrity, morality, and consideration of others in personal
behavior. By accepting appointment to the faculty, continuing in employment, or
continuing class enrollment, individuals evidence their commitment to observe
the Honor Code standards approved by the Board of Trustees "at all times. . .
and in all places" (Mosiah 18:9).
believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good
to all men.... If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or
praiseworthy, we seek after these things.

sacred covenants, and the dress code is a lesser law preparation for how you
will dress and should act after you have entered into those covenants.
