Community input encouraged for Montana University System Listening Tour on October 28 at Salish Kootenai College

PABLO The Commissioner of Higher Education, Sheila Stearns, will be conducting a series of community listening sessions across the state over the next few weeks. Sixteen communities have been chosen to host the interactive events where various members of the Board of Regents will join the Commissioner. The sessions are designed to allow individuals to voice concerns about the higher education system and to offer suggestions for improvement. The Commissioner will make brief remarks about dual enrollment, transferability, pricing, availability and affordability of post secondary programs. The Montana University System is putting increased emphasis on making programs available to more Montanans and to increase the number of Montanans completing certificates and degrees through a Lumina Education Foundation Initiative entitled COLLEGE!NOW.

The session will be held from 10 a.m. to noon on Thursday, October 28 at the Late Louie Caye Building on the campus of Salish Kootenai College. Everyone is invited to participate.

For more information about the Montana University System Listening Tour, contact David Hall at the Office of the Commissioner of Higher Education at or 406-444-0608.
