Office of the President

A UM education has the ability to transform the lives of our students and empower them to create substantive and positive impact in our state, our nation, and the world. Our excellent sciences, arts and humanities, and renowned professional schools prepare students not only for success in their first, but also for the challenges and opportunities that will arise over the course of a career in a dynamic world.

The University of Montana acknowledges that we are in the aboriginal territories of the Salish and Kalispel people, a number of whom are our colleagues, students, and friends. Today, we honor the path they have always shown us in caring for this place for the generations to come.
