A BYU for Zion

Chancey C. Riddle’s commencement address, given in August of 1975 offers suggestions on how we can contribute as a university to Zion. He suggests 1) Dependence upon the Savior; 2) Morality, the Key to Knowledge; 3) Concern for the Poor; 4) Emphasis on Doing; 5) Careful Distinction Between Being Intelligent and Being Intellectual; and 6) No Priestcraft. Riddle believes that these suggestions are not too idealistic, nor does he believe that BYU is not engaged in these activities already. He merely asserts that “My purpose has been to celebrate what I take to be the goal of this institution.”
