  • Entrepreneurial opportunities associated with Montana State University’s Jake Jabs College of Business and Entrepreneurship were highlighted in an article that recently appeared in a magazine with an international reach.

    “Entrepreneurial Programs Rev Up a Local Economy” appeared in the November/December issue of BizEd magazine, which is distributed in print and online to more than 51,000 readers across the globe.

    “As our students’ interest in entrepreneurship has grown, we’ve also adopted a new approach in our curriculum that has created more opportunities for students to collaborate with business leaders, build relationships with the community, and connect with local entrepreneurs,” wrote Audrey Capp, director of communications and public relations for the Jake Jabs College of Business and Entrepreneurship, and Sarah Cairoli, director of the college’s Bracken Business Communications Clinic. “This model not only has accelerated the frequency of engagement among faculty, students, and local business leaders; it also has helped our community address one of its greatest economic challenges: its remote location.”

  • The leaders of a longtime collaborative partnership between Montana State University and members of the Apsáalooke (Crow) Nation of rural southeastern Montana have been recognized nationally for their work to promote health equity and social justice.

    Messengers for Health co-directors Suzanne Held and Alma McCormick recently received the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Award for Health Equity Presented by Community-Campus Partnerships for Health. McCormick is a member of the Apsáalooke Nation and Held is a community health professor in the MSU College of Education, Health and Human Development. Messengers for Health – which is also called Messengers – originally focused on culturally appropriate ways to increase cancer screening rates among Apsáalooke women.

    The partnership has since expanded to multiple topic areas including women’s health, men’s health, healthcare provider cultural competency, healthy relationships and chronic illness self-management.

  • One of the last projects of Montana State University’s yearlong 125th anniversary celebration is one with a lot of heart.

    Heartwood, that is, that comes from the heart of the MSU campus. That’s what the MSU 125th anniversary time capsule is made from, according to master woodworker Bill Clinton of the MSU School of Architecture who handcrafted the time capsule that was presented to MSU students at the 2018 Lighting of Montana Hall ceremony on Dec. 5.

    Clinton said that two types of wood were used for the box, which will be stored in the MSU Library Archives. The body of the box was made from Douglas fir harvested to make room for Jabs Hall in 2015. The white oak that Clinton used to fashion the knob, key escutcheon and plaque came from a tree harvested to build the chemistry building in 2008.

    “I’ve been saving this wood for a long time and am so happy to be able to use it for this project,” Clinton said.

    Among objects already submitted from across campus representing MSU at this point in its history includes a letter from Cruzado written to the Class of 2093 to be read on the university’s 200th anniversary celebration.

  • Begun in 2015, the “Lights on Montana Hall” is meant to deepen the sense of community surrounding Montana’s land-grant university, President Waded Cruzado said.

    “As the year draws to a close and the nights grow long and cold, it’s important to celebrate traditions and to be grateful for the ties that bind us together as a Bobcat community,” she said.

    The event featured holiday music, the MSU School of Music’s Montanans, carols by preschool students from MSU’s Child Development Center, remarks from the student body president and vice president, a welcome and brief remarks from MSU President Waded Cruzado, drum line and a countdown by MSU cheerleaders and Champ before thousands of festive lights illuminate Montana Hall. In addition, a time capsule in honor of MSU’s 125th anniversary was dedicated.

  • Montana State University is keeping students in school and graduating them on time at the highest rates in modern university history. The efforts were highlighted today during a presentation of MSU’s annual Fall Institutional Report to campus leaders.

    “We at Montana State University know that attracting new students is not enough,” said MSU President Waded Cruzado. “Our job is not done unless they graduate.

    “Increasing the number of students who stay in school and graduate is very hard to do, and it is usually done at other universities by narrowing access to accept only the most accomplished and highest-performing students,” she added. “MSU is leading the nation in showing this can be done by preserving our commitment to be a university for all students. At MSU, it is not about chasing privilege, but choosing promise.”

    This fall the university saw an increase in the number of students returning to MSU for a second year of school, a measure known as “retention.” Some 77.2 percent of first-time, full-time students returned for their second year — the highest percentage in modern MSU recordkeeping for nearly 30 years.

  • Montana State University won awards for two events held this year from the National Association of Campus Activities, which provides resources for higher education to promote student learning through engagement in campus life.

    MSU won the top award for the outstanding one-time event for this year’s 125th anniversary version of the annual freshmen “M” photo. MSU also won the Inclusive Excellence Award, given to the best program with a diversity or multicultural theme, for the student-led Diversity Symposium held last spring.

    “Being recognized at the national level demonstrates the caliber of events and programs that we are providing for our university and Bozeman communities,” said Chelsey Wilson, student engagement and leadership adviser in the Office of Student Engagement. Wilson advises the Associated Students of MSU student directors who plan activities for their peers. “We (in the Office of Student Engagement) believe that when students feel connected outside the classroom, they are more likely to succeed inside the classroom.”

  • A research collaboration between three Montana State University faculty members recently received a grant to help fund their study on the connection between a rare genetic neurological disease and metabolism, the human gut microbiome and degeneration of the nervous system. The work could further the understanding of what causes more common neurodegenerative diseases and eventually pave the way for therapeutics to treat them.

    The National Institutes of Health awarded $2.9 million to MSU professors Frances Lefcort, Seth Walk and Valerie Copié for their research into Familial dysautonomia, a disease that attacks and devastates the nervous system. The five-year grant will fund their research and student education, including the several undergraduates and two graduate students who are currently contributing research to the project.

  • Montana State University began a new program for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities called LIFE Scholars – LIFE stands for Learning Is For Everyone – the program enrolled its first group of students in the fall of 2018.

    The MSU LIFE Scholars Program is an inclusive post-secondary experience that opened this fall to its first seven students, according to Christy Sofianek, program director. The program consists of three main components: academics, career development and campus engagement. Students who are enrolled in the program may choose to either audit classes or take them for credit. Students this fall selected courses in meteorology, creative writing, public speaking, horse handling, aviation and tae kwon do, among other subjects, Sofianek said. LIFE Scholars also engage in extra-curricular campus activities and complete an internship in order to develop job skills and explore careers.

    LIFE Scholars is a three-year program, but students may complete it in as few as two years or extend it to a maximum of four years. Scholars who successfully complete the program requirements earn a LIFE Scholars certificate and are eligible to participate in the university’s commencement ceremony.

    Students with intellectual and developmental disabilities who are at least 18, who have completed high school and who have a strong desire to attend college are eligible to apply for the LIFE Scholars program. Individuals who would like to learn more are invited to visit montana.edu/ehhd/lifescholars/ or contact Sofianek at 406-994-3114 or christy.sofianek@montana.edu.

  • A Montana State University philosophy professor and her longtime collaborator are gaining national and international attention for their views on bridging the gap between scientists and the public.

    In their recently published book, "The Fight Against Doubt," Kristen Intemann from MSU and Inmaculada de Melo-Martin from Cornell University examine disconnects over such things as climate change, childhood vaccinations, GMOs and the relationship between HIV and AIDS.

    "Given the current national and international debates over issues such as climate change, genetics and environmental impacts, Professor Intemann's major new work on the apparent disconnect between contemporary science and public opinion is both timely and relevant," said Nicol Rae, dean of the College of Letters and Science.

    De Melo-Martin said, "We are very excited about the book being out and are hoping that it will create an interesting debate, not just in philosophy of science but also among scientists."
