Montana University System leaders say state campuses should unify student recruiting so that more Montanans would pursue a college education -- and so that campuses stop competing against each other for students.

Clay Christian, commissioner of higher education, said exactly how unified recruiting would work will be figured out in coming months.

But Christian said it could mean that when students apply to a Montana college, they'd go to a single portal or website, to apply to all state campuses.

This is a great first step to managing our university system as a single entity.

It's been like two divisions in a company actively work against each other to the detriment of the parent which in this case is Montana.

The sports rivalry is fine but it's only a few games a year.

Let's encourage all campuses to collaborate on any number of efforts to make our education system more attractive and available to all.
