This text appears to be a copied verbatim from the main BYU page on wikipedia. Why should this page exist if the text is already on BYU's main page? Alternatively, why should the text be on the main BYU page if it exists here? ( (talk) 15:22, 29 November 2007 (UTC))

Because the BYU page is too long and that section will be summarized into a couple of paragraphs soon. This page will hold what used to be there. Wrad (talk) 16:25, 29 November 2007 (UTC)
I disagree - remember the guideline:Wikipedia is not a paper encyclopedia, and as such "there is no practical limit to the number of topics it can cover, or the total amount of content". I think this article should be merged with the main BYU article. --Descartes1979 (talk) 23:03, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

Bot report : Found duplicate references ![edit]

In the last revision I edited, I found duplicate named references, i.e. references sharing the same name, but not having the same content. Please check them, as I am not able to fix them automatically :)

  • "sampleapp" :
    • BYU also does not allow off-campus groups to use the campus for protests or demonstrations. On-campus groups and students must apply for a permit.<ref>{{cite news | last = Walsh | first = Tad | authorlink = Tad Walsh | title = '''Y. campus protests to be rather decorous''' | work = Deseret Morning News | publisher = | volume = | issue = | date = 2007-04-04 | accessdate = 2007-04-04 | url =,1249,660208720,00.html }}

Jeffrey Nielsen section deletion[edit]

I've deleted the Jeffrey Nielsen section because it simply repeats information found earlier in the article.Kant66 (talk) 05:36, 9 March 2011 (UTC)


This article relies far too much on the report of the AAUP which censured BYU. It too often ignores the real issues involved, such as having ognored to mention what Houston was advocating that caused concerns for administrators. To rely on a one-sided censure report in the epitome of POV pushing.John Pack Lambert (talk) 05:17, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
