As part of the greater BYU community, we whole-heartedly embrace the BYU Statement on Belonging:

We are united by our common primary identity as children of God (Acts 17:29; Psalm 82:6) and our commitment to the truths of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ (BYU Mission Statement). We strive to create a community of belonging composed of students, faculty, and staff whose hearts are knit together in love (Mosiah 18:21) where:

  • All relationships reflect devout love of God and a loving, genuine concern for the welfare of our neighbor (BYU Mission Statement);

  • We value and embrace the variety of individual characteristics, life experiences and circumstances, perspectives, talents, and gifts of each member of the community and the richness and strength they bring to our community (1 Corinthians 12:12–27);

  • Our interactions create and support an environment of belonging (Ephesians 2:19); and

  • The full realization of each student’s divine potential is our central focus (BYU Mission Statement)

Here in the College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, we invite everyone to study the wonders of nature with us.
