The International Vice President’s Office was established in 2001 to coordinate and communicate Brigham Young University’s international activities, facilitate and leverage efficient use of university resources, and strategically focus attention on priorities of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We partner with faculty, colleges, the Church, and others.

The International Vice President’s Office is about making the motto, “The World Is Our Campus” a continuing and evident part of university life. In 1962, when President Ernest L. Wilkinson posted the sign at our campus’s front gate, he provided a visual marker on what was already long underway, namely, the development of a unique, prophetically led university that would progress from a good regional college to an outstanding international university.

The International Vice President’s office has responsibility for the following:

  • Ambassadorial Visits Program
  • College of Continuing Education
  • International Diplomatic Scholarships
  • Performing Arts Management
  • Special International Projects
  • David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies
  • International Study Programs
  • Global Security, Health and Safety – including International Travel
