Biographical/Historical note

Brigham Young University was established in 1875 as Brigham Young Academy. It has since grown into one of the largest private institutions of higher education in the United States. The Board of Trustees for Brigham Young University is the governing body for that institution. The university president reports directly to it, and it decides many matters regarding university policy. The board started operation with the founding of the university in 1875.
