“Deep learning is the result of a learner, acting in, with, and by faith in Christ . . . . Deep learning leads to understanding—the capacity to know, do, and become—and is ultimately a gift of the Spirit.”
Brigham Young University, Brigham Young University—Hawaii, Brigham Young University—Idaho and Ensign College exist to provide an education in an atmosphere consistent with the ideals and principles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. That atmosphere is created and preserved through commitment to conduct that reflects those ideals and principles. Members of the faculty, administration, staff and student body at BYU, BYU—Hawaii, BYU—Idaho and Ensign College are selected and retained from among those who voluntarily live the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Observance of such is a specific condition of employment and admission. Those individuals who are not members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are also expected to maintain the same standards of conduct, except church attendance. All who represent BYU, BYU—Hawaii, BYU—Idaho and Ensign College are to maintain the highest standards of honor, integrity, morality and consideration of others in personal behavior. By accepting appointment on the faculty, continuing in employment or continuing class enrollment, individuals evidence their commitment to observe the Honor Code standards approved by the Board of Trustees “at all times and … in all places” (Mosiah 18:9).
This code of conduct is required of all who attend or work at Ensign College. The overarching goal of the Honor Code is to invite the Spirit into the lives of students in order to create greater discipleship. The Honor Code centers on four foundational purposes: a community of saints, a demonstration of love, a light to the world and a protection against the storm.
Students make an individual pledge to live the principles of the Honor Code before enrolling at the College—a pledge that is renewed annually. This commitment requires important internal preparation. While at the College, students live in a society that outwardly exemplifies the values of the Honor Code. This community experience provides important group preparation. The combination of individual and group obedience is an essential prerequisite before God can lift the student and the College to higher understanding, greater power and a deeper, abiding joy.
