Brent Bean

Communication Faculty Member

Brother Bean was hired to teach Communication at Ricks College in 1998. Prior to that he was a seminary teacher for the church.

Brother Bean has a bachelors degree from Utah State University, a masters degree from Idaho State University and a doctorate degree from the University of Idaho.

He currently serves as the Bishop of the YSA 62nd Ward at BYU Idaho.

Brother Bean enjoys spending time with his family. They just returned home from a world wind tour of Ontario Toronto Canada, and upper state New York.

If he's not teaching, "bishoping", or spending time with his family he's probably on the golf course.

Brother and Sister Bean celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary this summer. They are the parents of five children: Brennan (an applied mathematics major at BYU-I), Devin (a music major at BYU-I), Jaren (currently serving a mission in the Seoul Korea mission), Amree and Rylan.

They just became "in-laws" this summer and welcome Kaitlyn to their family.
