Description

Patricia Douglas offers her definition of what the University of Montana is and what a liberal arts education is. She details the University’s main sources of funding, and explains why the Montana University System made its largest funding request, as of 1976, due to inflation. Douglas summarizes trends in enrollment at the University and clarifies why forecasting enrollment is difficult to predict. She emphasizes the University’s importance in her life, and the opportunities that she feels the institution presents to young Montanans and non-traditional students. Douglas details her role as Assistant to the President, and her work with President Bowers communicating with Montanans about how the University could serve them.
