Brigham Young University 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, since 1939, has consisted of the First Presidency of the Church as well as other General Authorities or general officers of the Church appointed by the First Presidency. The Board of Trustees provides general direction and oversees the formulation of broad policies as well as the approval of all executive leadership and faculty appointments at the university. The Board of Trustees delegates to the University President the responsibility to conduct the operations of the institution and administer the policies enacted by the board. The President serves as the chief executive officer and general manager of the University. Since 1996, the President of the university has also been a General Authority of the Church.
Brigham Young University has grown from a small academy to one of the world's largest private universities. Sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, BYU offers a unique educational environment that promotes learning by study and also by faith.
The Admissions and Records Office was established in 1956 and was designed to help students from their first inquiry about Brigham Young University. The office also worked with faculty, parents, university administration, and agencies that require information about student records. The responsibility of the office is divided into eleven supervised areas. These include the Admissions Adviser Program, High School & Junior College Relations, Financial Aids, Admissions Office, Registrar, Evaluation—Transfer and Graduation, Data Collection and Analysis, Microfilm Services, Academic Advisement, and cooperating with the Educational Information and Guidance Center.
Admissions and Records was under the direction of a dean and administered regularly over the Admissions Office, Records Office, and Registrars. Over some periods it also was over the Admissions Advisers Program, the Coordinator of Financial Aids, and the Statistics and Veterans officer. The office of Admissions and Records was under the direction of these deans: Bliss H. Crandal (1956-1959), Alma P. Burton (1959-1964), William R. Siddoway (1964-1972), Robert W. Spencer (1974-1991), Erlend D. Peterson (1992-2001).
The Admissions and Records Office was renamed Student Academic and Advisement Services in 2001.
