  • This week, UM hosted Empower Spinal Cord Injury (SCI), Inc, a program dedicated to empowering those with spinal cord injuries to live happier, more meaningful and independent lives.

    Seven recently injured individuals with paraplegia or quadriplegia spent the week in a community of experienced wheelchair users as they learn to navigate the challenges and nuances of living with a spinal cord injury.

    They were supported by a specialized volunteer team of UM students and faculty, occupational and physical therapists, personal care aides and nurses as they engaged in activities like fishing, kayaking, yoga, wheelchair rugby, educational sessions and rehabilitation counseling.

    It is the first time the East Coast-based program is being held outside of its home campus of Stony Brook University in New York.

  • At the University of Montana, mountains surround campus and offer unparalleled natural classrooms and laboratory space. Many of our students tackle academic adventures in wild places. In the Wilderness and Civilization Program, students immerse themselves in the study of wildland conservation and explore the human-nature relationship. They meet land managers, conservation advocates, tribal leaders and innovative landowners while exploring some of the wildest country in the lower 48 states. Students who experience the program, which is administered by the Wilderness Institute in UM’s forestry college, earn a wilderness studies minor and receive a whole-person education. Meet a few recent participants who thrive by pushing the boundaries of their own education. http://bit.ly/2ZmhdXk

Twenty-five years after earning her Master of Fine Arts degree, Frostad still makes her living as an artist in Missoula. Three days remain to take in her fabulous work at our own Montana Museum of Art and Culture.

  • Over the past 50 years, agrochemical corporations have gained control of over 60 percent of global seed sales. A movement afoot believes this industry control is alarming, and UM environmental studies alumna Kristina “Kiki” Hubbard is part of it. She is one of several activists featured in a recent article in the The New York Times Opinion Section, written by well-known chef Dan Barber.

  • UM is a remarkable place to become a change-maker in the world, in part because the Missoula community embraces students and provides countless ways to become involved through service-learning and volunteer opportunities.

    Those opportunities played a key role in shaping recent grad Haley Eakin's education at UM. She graduated with honors in May, earning degrees in social work and women's, gender and sexuality studies with a minor in nonprofit administration.

    "I believe that the people building trails, hosting gatherings and engaging in other service work truly make our communities vibrant and a special place to live," Eakin says. "I'm drawn toward experiences that allow me to better the community and ecosystem that surround me."

  • Eighteen Montanans traveled to Peru last month on a mission to promote gender equality through sport and help expand the reach of girls and women’s soccer in the country. This adventurous group included a freshman Griz soccer player, former Griz players and several UM employees. The trip to Lima and Arequipa was part of a Sports Diplomacy-Sports for Social Change exchange program administered by UM’s Mansfield Center. We're proud of the efforts of our Grizzlies abroad to harness the world’s universal passion for sports to transcend language and sociocultural barriers and bring people together. http://bit.ly/2WTPqA6

  • June 8, 1898, marked the first Commencement at the University of Montana, with a graduating class of two. Perhaps it's no surprise that those first graduates were women: Ella Robb Glenny earned a Bachelor of Arts and Eloise Knowles received a Bachelor of Philosophy. From our earliest days, UM has dedicated itself to providing a safe and empowering learning environment that accelerates the careers of all women. #UMseachange

  • University of Montana geophysicist Rebecca Bendick knew sending a team of scientists to do fieldwork in Afghanistan was dangerous. But she also knew collecting data on seismic hazards in the war-torn nation would help engineers make crucial decisions about future infrastructure projects.

    So she found the funding to make it happen, and UM grad student Dylan Schmeelk traveled to northeast Afghanistan in 2015 to install the country's first GPS station that can monitor the crust’s motion.

  • "The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex." On June 4, 1919, Congress passed the 19th Amendment, forwarding it on to the states for ratification, which would not come until 1920.

    One hundred years later, the University of Montana remains committed to promoting safety, empowerment and success of all women. We're honored to look to alumnae like Jeannette Rankin as an example of how to achieve great things.

    Rankin became the first woman to win a seat in the U.S. Congress in 1916 when she was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. Throughout her political career, she was a fearless advocate for women earning a seat at every table and, most importantly, in the voting booth.

    Rankin's dedication to advancing women's rights and civil rights spanned more than six decades, and her life's work left a deep impact at UM, in Montana and across the U.S. Today, we're still inspired by her lifelong passion and action toward equality, and we are committed to carrying on her legacy.

  • UM students have been conducting hands-on learning since the days when they wore Edwardian dresses to class.

    Students like Mary Elrod Ferguson, pictured here working in a UM science lab in the early 1900s. Ferguson earned a bachelor's degree in biology from UM in 1911, and was a founding member of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority. She taught zoology at UM from 1918 to 1920, and later served as dean of women from 1935 to 1946. From 1946 until her retirement in 1957, she served as the assistant director of the Museum and Northwest History Collections at the University.

    Ferguson's undauntable spirit carries on at UM today.

A community of women at the University of Montana is tackling this disparity through Pursue Your Passion, a program that offers inspiration and mentorship to women as they transform their business ideas into viable careers. It’s just one example of how UM is working to create a societal sea change that allows us all to benefit from talented and determined women.

  • Eight caring and devoted nursing students and two instructors from UM’s Missoula College recently traveled to the Dominican Republic for a week of service. They worked with 90 immigrant children in an orphanage, assessing and treating illnesses from skin infections to asthma. The trip is one of many available to UM students interested in gaining hands-on experience in global health.

    "Going to the Dominican Republic and having the opportunity to meet and care for so many wonderful people, children and adults has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life," UM student Lara Grover said. "It was humbling, yet heartwarming to see the kindness, generosity and gratefulness they showed us. We were welcomed with open arms and quickly became a part of their family. This is an experience that will be in my heart forever. I cannot wait to return and see them again."

  • Let's give a "Go Griz!" shoutout to the Grizzly football players who earned a cumulative 3.0 spring semester GPA – the highest in team history. To get there, the Griz had five players secure a perfect 4.0 and 13 earned a spot on the Dean's List with a 3.5 or better. A total of 52 players achieved a 3.0 or better. Dante Olson, the nation's leading tackler in 2018, was one of the Grizzlies who achieved a perfect 4.0. Congratulations to the entire team for showing Grizzly grit both on the field and in the classroom.
