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. UM’s Marching Band leads students to the oval, where they are greeted by university faculty, staff, and administrators. 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.

The Office of Organizational Learning and Development coordinates and develops opportunities for faculty to grow professionally and personally.

New Faculty Orientation
