Intercultural Peacebuilding - McKay Center


Mission Statement

President David O. McKay, when founding BYU Hawaii, had a vision that "from this school will go men and women whose influence will be felt for good toward the establishment of peace internationally." That vision has become BYUH's vision. BYUH exists to "assist individuals in their quest for perfection and eternal life and in their efforts to promote world peace and international brotherhood."

The David O. McKay Center for Intercultural Understanding helps BYUH students, faculty, staff and alumni fulfill that prophecy by functioning as a cross-cultural peace building laboratory that:

1.  Educates BYUH students, faculty, staff and alumni with the theoretical and practical tools they need to be leaders and peacebuilders

2.  Sponsors practical community building and cross-cultural leadership opportunities in the university, community and the world.

Outcomes
  1. Relate their faith and the knowledge that they've obtained through their major at BYUH to Presiden't McKay's prophecy.
  2. Learn foundational theories about cultural interaction, community building, cross cultural leadership and conflict resolution
  3. Develop and demonstrate a practical skill set to effectively manage, resolve and transform intercultural interaction and conflict
  4. Obtain a set of leadership theories and skills that can be employed in the international church as well as in secular areas like the community, country and internationally
  5. Become exposed to what staff, faculty, alumni and community members are dong to fulfill President McKay's philosophy both here in Laie and in the world.
  6. Give meaningful, high impact service back to the community with an eye toward creating and preserving intercultural understanding
  7. Create a personal plan of action that will give them concrete steps toward fulfilling President McKay's prophecy upon their return to their home countries and communities.
