The office of Public Affairs had its beginnings in 1976. It was created to support the president's office by interfacing with officials of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and organizing and implementing high-level events. Today, it also oversees the Shelley Visitors Center. Further information is available by calling (801) 422-4679.
