Administrative History

Brigham Young University was established in 1875 as the Brigham Young Academy. It became Brigham Young University in 1903. The university was a relatively small, private school through the early 1950s. From the mid-1950s through the 1970s, Brigham Young University grew from a student population of about 5,000 to a student population of over 25,000.
