Letter from the President

At the University of Montana, we commit to fully realizing our bold promise to provide broad access for people to reach their full potential. By cultivating a diverse and inclusive learning environment that supports the success of each individual, we foster an academic community rich with creativity, innovation, and discovery. Diversity and inclusion are cornerstones of academic excellence and of our students' future success as members of diverse communities. We therefore seek diversity in all of its forms, actively listening to and learning from others and openly building a learning environment that respects and values difference.

- President Seth Bodnar
