Administration at the University of Montana

Royce and Mary EngstromWelcome to the University of Montana! There are few universities in the world that combine the quality of people, breadth of programming, tremendous stakeholder support, and stunning beauty of the University of Montana. Those of us who work and learn here are truly fortunate. It is a university that has a distinctive spirit at its core, a spirit that drives opportunity, impact, responsibility, and vitality.

The University of Montana is an affiliation of four institutions: the flagship campus in Missoula, the University of Montana Western located in Dillon, Montana Tech of the University of Montana in Butte, and Helena College-University of Montana. Each has its own emphasis, character, and learning environment. Collectively, these institutions provide outstanding education, scholarship, and service. We pride ourselves on serving our community—from the Rockies to the world!

It is a privilege to serve as the President of the University of Montana. Every day, I see students who discover something new about the world around them, faculty members who dedicate themselves to the disciplines they love and to their students, staff members and leaders who work tirelessly to serve the University, friends and alumni who give generously to support the next generation of students, and community members who take part in the excitement of the academic, cultural, and athletic events.

Our world needs great universities. The challenges and opportunities before us call for creative thinkers and leaders. Those are the people associated with the University of Montana!
