Upcoming Mansfield Dialogue
Please join us January 26, 2022, at 7 p.m. MST for the inaugural Spring 2022 Mansfield Dialogue, "Resuscitating the American Republic: Fidelity to One Another, the Cause of Freedom, and the Country's Future." Former Montana Governor and Republican National Committee Chair, Marc Racicot, will address fidelity and risks to our republic, our fellow citizens, and our shared values. The New UM Provost, Dr. Pardis Mahdavi, will introduce the dialogue, which is moderated by veteran political reporter, Chuck Johnson.
Promoting Dialogue — Public lectures and conferences are an important part of our community outreach and education, offering the opportunity to engage in conversation about local, national, and international topics.
A Way Forward — Examine the role that ethical values can and should play in public life, the moral quandaries faced by those who govern, and the issues of leadership and character in public service.
Tomorrow's Leaders — We embrace UM’s Priorities for Action to place student success at the center of all we do. Our commitment is not just to UM students, but also to Montana high school students.
UM Students — From long-running study abroad programs to courses on public diplomacy, we are committed to providing students with opportunities to develop their leadership skills and global competence.
A Special Community — Maureen and Mike Mansfield loved Montana. We strive to engage communities throughout Montana in our programs, to bring the world to Montana and present Montana to the world.
Explore the World — We offer opportunities to explore critical global issues from climate change to civic development for youth, community members, professionals, and educators.
