About Us

Mission

The mission of the University of Montana Press is to publish a small number of high quality books each year that represent important scholarly and creative work. We concentrate primarily, but not exclusively, on areas of strong academic programs or special emphasis at the University and its faculty; or areas that address the geography, interests, and concerns of Montana, the sovereign tribes, and the region. Additionally, under the “Mount Sentinel Books of the UM Press” imprint, we occasionally publish special books and other materials of interest to the University and the greater Montana and regional community of readers.

The University of Montana Press endeavors to promote the intellectual labor, research productivity, and creativity of the faculty and students of the University of Montana, as well as the issues, concerns, and interests of the citizens of the state and the sovereign tribes.
