Administrative History

The Student Life Team supports and models the mission of Brigham Young University. It accomplishes its mission by providing food and housing, goods and services, student leadership, development, counseling, health and safety, service learning, Honor Code education, and multi-cultural programs. Student Life was organized in 1945 by President Howard McDonald in order to organize all student activities and special services under a definite head. McDonald created the positions of Dean of Students and Director of Special Services to carry out his vision.
