Karl G. Maeser: Educational Architect

Learn about the extraordinary life and educational philosophies of Karl G. Maeser, the man who was instrumental in building BYU and the Church Education System. From his early life in Germany to his conversion and immigration to the United States, explore Maeser’s life and how his unique approach to education still impacts us today.

You may think you know who Maeser is, but this exhibit will allow you to delve deeper into Mormon history and educational philosophy so that you can connect with the miracles of Maeser’s life to see this great man from a new perspective.
