BYU On Campus Resources

Speakers Bureau

The BYU Speakers Bureau is a service coordinated by the BYU Public Affairs and Guest Relations Office. More than 50 faculty and employees of BYU are available to speak to various organizations. Speakers from ISPART (Institute for the Study and Preservation of Ancient Religious Texts)—formerly FARMS—and from the College of Nursing are also available. BYU speakers will accommodate civic, educational, corporate, or church groups (at the stake, regional, or area levels).

Speakers scheduled through the BYU Speakers Bureau are free; however, the requesting party is responsible for costs associated with travel, food, and lodging where applicable. If travel is by car, the reimbursement fee for round-trip mileage is payable to the speaker immediately following the presentation. It is BYU Alumni policy that a chapter must turn in annual chapter reports to be eligible for financial help when scheduling a speaker. To schedule a speaker, a request should be made at least two months in advance through Julie Hatchett (801) 422-5789 or email at julie_hatchett@byu.edu.

Performing Arts Management

Representing the finest in entertainment from Brigham Young University, BYU’s performing ensembles annually participate in stage performances, conventions, workshops, festivals, competitions, and other community outreach activities. Chapters, especially local chapters, can request a group to perform in their area. It’s an ideal way to bring BYU to your hometown. Contact the BYU Performing Arts Management office at (801) 422-3576 or email at perform@byu.edu. Visit their homepage at http://pam.byu.edu

Athletic Outreach

BYU Athletic Outreach focuses on giving out-of-state BYU fans the opportunity to be a part of the development and success of BYU’s teams. Where possible, athletes will participate in firesides, seminary visits, or other planned events.

Please contact Bob and Cindy Wakefield (801) 422-4575 for scheduling options and more information.

Alumni Placement Center

The alumni placement center provides services for BYU alumni and friends who are seeking employment. The center provides free advisement, networking lists, job search, a placement database, as well as other online resources. They hold two career fairs in Provo each year alumni may attend, and they also co-sponsor regional career fairs. For employers, they offer services such as job postings, access to alumni resumes, and assistance with top management positions. Contact Information: Scott Greenhalgh (801) 422-6936

School Relations/Be Smart Firesides

CES firesides are offered throughout the fall across the United States. Each year, the locations of these firesides are changed to give more prospective college students the opportunity to attend. These firesides will inform students about the purpose of gaining a higher education, the options within the church educational system, and how to ease the transition from high school to college.

A chapter may request a Be Smart Fireside in their area. The chapter chair should send a simple letter stating the need in their area for an education conference, how long it has been since there has been a fireside, and if there will be people to help with advertising. After a request is made, a “host Stake” will be found and surrounding stakes will be invited. Requests are made a year in advance and should be sent to Lorie Gardiner at A-209 ASB Provo, UT 84602 or emailed to admissions_services@byu.edu.

The internship office also provides funding and training to department internship coordinators and department internship programs.

The purpose of the internship office is primarily for students; however, as chapter chairs can play a vital role in this process by making contacts with BYU alumni in your area who can lead students to internship opportunities. The internship office contact information is as follows: 5435 HBLL, Provo, UT 84602, Phone: (801) 422-3337, Fax: (801) 422-0172, Email: internship@byu.edu.
