Our mission is Montana
Founded in 1893, the University of Montana continues to innovate through the courageous
creativity of those who call it home.
Today, Montana is proud to have over 10,000 Grizzlies across a variety of fields, all of whom contribute their passion and practicality toward stewardship and sustainability for the world around us.
It’s simple: a top-ranked education you can afford. In one of the most gorgeous locations on Earth. With endless student experiences. And a close-knit community that’s dedicated to helping you find success, whatever your success looks like. That’s Montana. And we’re remaking the world, one Grizzly at a time.
Helping students like you craft their future ethically and courageously is what we do here. It’s the grizzly way of life in Montana, and also our Latin motto: “Lux et Veritas,” meaning “Light and Truth.”
The University of Montana lies within the aboriginal territories of the Salish and Kalispel people. Today, we honor the path they have always shown us in caring for this place for the generations to come.
