Each semester, the Provost invites distinguished UM faculty members to share their expertise with the campus community. All lectures are free and open to the public.

Celebrate Academics

Charter Day, February 13, is a time to celebrate the teaching and learning that has been taking place at UM for 120 years and counting.

Constitution Day

Each year, the University of Montana commemorates the signing of the United States Constitution on September 17, 1787 with a Constitution Day lecture. The Office of the Provost sponsors this annual lecture, which is free and open to the public.


Academic Convocation occurs each fall and is a celebration to officially welcome incoming students to the University of Montana.

Each college and school hosts a bonfire where students gather to enjoy ice cream and meet people who will inspire, challenge, and support them throughout their UM careers.
