Maureen and Mike Mansfield Center

The health, safety and welfare of our global community are our highest priority. The staff of the Mansfield Center joins many of our University colleagues in working from our homes to best protect the community at large. Contact us by email or telephone.

Please be assured that we continue to serve our students, global fellows, and partners across the world. Our current crisis shines a light on the importance of a global collaborative spirit.  We are currently developing plans to offer a series of virtual workshops and seminars. Please contact us if you would like to share your expertise.  At the same time, if you are working to support your community in fighting COVID-19, please share your stories with us by social media or e-mail.

We are a resilient and powerful community. International friendships continue to persevere across borders.  Thank you for joining with us -- now, and into the future.

On behalf of the team at the Maureen and Mike Mansfield Center 


 The Maureen and Mike Mansfield Center at The University of Montana promotes better understanding of Asia, U.S. relations with Asia, and ethics in public affairs in the spirit of Senator Mike Mansfield (1903-2001) and his wife and life partner Maureen Hayes Mansfield. The Center houses programs that focus on the peoples and cultures of modern Asia and ethics in public affairs, the core interests and hallmarks of Senator Mansfield's career.

The University of Montana and the Mansfield Center acknowledge that we are in the aboriginal territories of the Salish and Kalispel people, a number of whom are our colleagues, students, and friends. Today, we honor the path they have always shown us in caring for this place for the generations to come.
