"I encourage each person, regardless of age, to continue to learn," President Nelson said to the audience gathered for the installment of the first BYU-Pathway Worldwide president. "Pursue whatever path will be most valuable to you and your family. You will be blessed as you do this. You will grow academically, professionally and spiritually as you seek to enhance your education."
The president of the newest BYU is now official.
Clark Gilbert was formally installed as the first president of BYU-Pathway Worldwide on Thursday night by President Russell M. Nelson, president of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at the Conference Center Theater in downtown Salt Lake City.
Gilbert's inauguration was carried on a live feed to 458 BYU-PW sites in 77 nations so any of the 38,297 students who have taken Pathway-related courses this year could participate.
