Administrative History

Brigham Young University--Hawaii Campus (1974-2003) was a university sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Laie, Hawaii. In May 2003, the university official took the name Brigham Young University--Hawaii.

In 1974, President Spencer W. Kimball of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints publicly announced that Church College of Hawaii would become Brigham Young University–-Hawaii Campus. During this period, the president of the Hawaii Campus reported to the Brigham Young University administration in Provo, Utah. In 2003, the university began reporting directly to the Church Board of Trustees, and officially took the name Brigham Young University--Hawaii.

Presidents of Brigham Young University--Hawaii Campus included Dan W. Anderson (1974-1980); J. Elliot Cameron (1980-1986); Alton L. Wade (1986-1994); and Eric B. Shumway (1994-2003).
