Since my appointment as interim dean, I have felt tremendous gratitude for each member of our wonderful BYU McKay School community: students, faculty, staff, administrators, and alumni. What a tremendous blessing it is for each of us to play a role in fulfilling BYU’s prophetic mission to assist individuals in their quest for eternal life. The McKay School mission statement aligns well with the university mission as we strive to model the attributes of Jesus Christ, the Master Teacher, and prepare professionals who educate with an eternal perspective.

We have recently been studying our branding and messaging in an effort to rediscover and more clearly articulate the fundamental components of our mission statement and more effectively share who we are and what we stand for. Through this process we have developed a new core message. We hope all will feel the love of our Heavenly Father and our Savior Jesus Christ as they each more fully understand their divine worth as a beloved child of God.
