Our Mission

Stance: Studies on the Family is a student journal associated with Brigham Young University. Our aim is to encourage students from all disciplines to research and write about family and the institution of marriage. Our journal emphasizes the impact that marriage and family have on society and vice versa.  We also address how family processes and interactions impact the different relationships within the family, while striving to increase awareness of current issues.  Understanding the many issues that may negatively impact a family, we strive to help families to remain united and joyful.

We carry out this mission through several platforms, including this blog, an annual journal, and our instagram @stancebyu.
