Brigham Young University–Idaho (BYU-Idaho), exists 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 commitment to conduct that reflects those ideals and principles. Members of the faculty, administration, staff, and student body at BYU-Idaho 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.

As a matter of personal commitment, faculty, staff, and students seek to demonstrate in daily living on and off campus those moral virtues encompassed in the gospel of Jesus Christ, and will:

  • Be honest.
  • Live a chaste and virtuous life.
  • Obey the law and all campus policies.
  • Use clean language.
  • Respect others.
  • Abstain from alcoholic beverages, tobacco, tea, coffee, and substance abuse.
  • Participate regularly in church services.
  • Observe the university's dress and grooming standards.
  • Encourage others in their commitment to comply with the Honor Code.
