University of Montana plans college restructure within next year

University of Montana

The University of Montana’s new provost is spearheading a plan to rename and restructure the University’s existing colleges.

UM Provost Pardis Mahdavi proposed collapsing most of UM’s schools into five colleges at an all staff and faculty meeting at the UC Ballroom on Sept. 9. The names, still yet to be finalized, will fall under four new pillars of “understanding, building, conserving and healing.”

Mahdavi, who started at UM this summer, said there will be no budget or staffing cuts. She added that the management structures of the newly configured schools will be coordinated with the Union Faculty Association, the union of all professors, and each school’s deans.

The restructure, which largely affects administrators, will take about a year to implement.
