“I feel honored that there would be a Mormon Studies Chair established at this university, in a program that is perhaps the premier Religious Studies program in the country. . . . I want to express my support, and thank all those who have supported and made it possible.”
– Elder D. Todd Christofferson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
The chair and its programs are supported by an LDS Council that participates in the development of the Mormon Studies program, promotes its initiatives, and provides counsel on its goals.
