Welcome to the WikiProject page for Brigham Young University. This page is designed to streamline collaborative efforts to improve the quality of BYU-related articles. We are currently overhauling this project and its accompanying project page (as you may notice below), but that just means it's a great time for you to get involved! Feel free to contact any project members with any questions or to drop us a note on this project's talk page. Go Cougars!

Collaboration Current collaboration

This section attempts to focus members on one article in order to give it a concentrated improvement effort.

The current WPBYU collaboration (until it reaches GA status) is:

BYU–Idaho

Our next project is TBD. If you would like to nominate an article for a future project or see what articles we've already collaborated on, please visit the Collaboration talk page.

Y This user attends or attended Brigham Young University.





Students and alumni of BYU–I can add {{User BYU-Idaho}} to their userpage for the following userbox:

BYU–I This user attends or attended
BYU–Idaho.

WikiProject templates

This template should be placed on all article talk pages in the BYU article series; doing so will automatically add the article to the category Category:WikiProject Brigham Young University.
Use this template on an article's talk page only if:
  • the article is not biographical in nature. Articles about people should use template {{WPBYU people}}
This template should be placed on article talk pages of noteworthy people affiliated with BYU; doing so will automatically add the article to the category Category:WikiProject Brigham Young University.
This can be added to a user's talk page as an invite to the BYU WikiProject
