BYU-Idaho is distinctive in the world of higher education because it is student focused by design. That means we put the students' success at the heart of all we do. The fruit of this focus can be found in what students accomplish here and in the following five educational emphases: 

Shared Values

Teaching Focused Faculty

Real-World Preparation

Potential of Every Student

High-Value Education
