Biographical / Historical

Brigham Young University was established in 1903 in a renaming of Brigham Young Academy. It is owned and operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as part of the Church Educational System (CES). The university is governed by a Board of Trustees, which delegates to the University President the responsibility to conduct the operations of the institution and administer the policies enacted by the board, and the President serves as the chief executive officer and general manager of the University.

Local campus clubs and organizations for students with common interest, as well as chapters of national honor societies hold a large place on campus. The local clubs link students to each other, while the national honor societies link BYU with the academic world. Tau Kappa Alpha, a national debating society, was the first national society on campus, followed by Theta Alpha Phi, Dramatics; Alpha Delta, commerce; Gamma Phi Omicron, home economics; and Alpha Kappa Psi.
