“The Creator of us all calls on each of us to abandon attitudes of prejudice against any group of God’s Children. Any of us who has prejudice toward another race needs to repent!
During the Savior’s earthly mission, He constantly ministered to those who were excluded, marginalized, judged, overlooked, abused, and discounted. As His followers, can we do anything less?
Let us be clear. We are brothers and sisters, each of us the child of a loving Father in Heaven. His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, invites all to come unto Him–“black and white, bond and free, male and female,” (2 Nephi 26:33). It behooves each of us to do whatever we can in our spheres of influence to preserve the dignity and respect every son and daughter of God deserves.”
– Russell M. Nelson, President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
At Brigham Young University’s Marriott School of Business, we embrace the university’s mission to “assist individuals in their quest for perfection and eternal life.” We strive to foster an environment that is respectful of all backgrounds, perspectives, and voices, “that all may be edified of all” (D&C 88:122). By extending a spirit of consideration, fellowship, and charity to everyone, we enable the discovery of common values and unique insights as we each pursue our worthy secular and spiritual goals.
