Dress and Grooming Standards Revision Petition: Well Groomed Facial Hair
While the Honor Code is great, and we support and subscribe to it, the Dress and Grooming Standards are coming up short in fairness and enforcement. It seems that the only people being denied services at BYU are the men who haven’t shaved that day. The ideals behind the dress and grooming standards are to maintain a neat, clean and well-groomed appearance. And Dallin H. Oaks said over 40 years ago "Our rules against beards and long hair are contemporary and pragmatic, they are responsive to conditions and attitudes in our own society at this particular point in time and are subject to change. I would be surprised if they were not changed at some time in the future."
Sign if you agree that well-groomed facial hair (beards, goatees, and moustaches) should be added and accepted by the Honor Code. Upon completion this will be submitted in person to the Director of the Honor Code office.
