BYU-Hawaii President John S. Tanner

BYU-Hawaii President John S. Tanner

We are grateful for your generous support of Brigham Young University-Hawaii. These sacred funds help support our wonderful students as they strive to become lifetime learners, leaders of integrity, and builders of the kingdom of God.

This is a remarkable time for BYU-Hawaii. I am inspired by the history of the university and the nature of its prophetic destiny, and I am committed to building on the firm foundations laid by pioneers, past presidents, prophets, and the Prince of Peace. 

There is a great power and purpose at BYU-Hawaii. We are not merely helping students know something; we are helping students become something. When President David O. McKay broke ground for what would become BYU-Hawaii, he prophesied that this university would produce men and women of noble character “whose influence will be felt for good toward the establishment of peace internationally.” 

I feel that BYU-Hawaii has an important role to play in the international Church as we prepare students who are able to serve with a spirit of love and peace. Your support of these students accelerates the building of the kingdom of God. Mahalo for your generosity.
