The University Of Montana President’s Advisory Council (PAC) consists of prominent alumni, community leaders, and friends of higher education and the University. Members provide wide-ranging advice and counsel twice a year during a spring semester and an autumn semester meeting. The council provides insight to the President and his leadership team. PAC members make a three-year commitment to serve and then rotate off the council. PAC membership involves travel to spring meetings that rotate among UM’s three affiliated campuses – Montana Western in Dillon, Montana Tech in Butte, and Helena College. The fall meeting is always on the UM campus.
PAC members advocate for the University, highlighting its education, research, and public-service roles. This includes advocacy at the state and federal levels, helping the UM president emphasize the University’s value as a resource for Montana, the nation and the world.
