University of Montana president expands Cabinet to include staff, faculty, student representatives

"Although we have had strong and regular interaction with all three groups, incorporating them into the regular cabinet conversations will help ensure that all good ideas are brought to the table."
Keila Szpaller for The Montana Standard
The University of Montana is an integral part of the Missoula community. A truly innovative cabinet could be achieved by including strategic members of the business and civic community to provide insight and guidance from their perspective. The potential participants should not only include those from Missoula but also those who live elsewhere but have a strong interest in the University's future.
Building an even stronger bond with the world outside of the University can only help both entities during these challenging times.
I hope it goes without saying that Montana businesses and non-profits could also benefit by including those associated with our Universities - administration, faculty and especially students - on their advisory boards.
