President's Letter

"The University of Montana respects, welcomes, encourages, and celebrates the differences among us. In recognition of this commitment, we value all members of the campus community, not in spite of, but because of their differences. The resultant value ambience influences the way our students perceive the world. These experiences enrich us with a greater understanding of the human condition and the challenges all people must confront in a rapidly changing, increasingly globalized, and ever more interdependent world society." ... President Royce Engstrom
