The University of Montana is taking a hard look at its priorities. University of Montana officials met Friday to take a hard look at the recommendations from a task force reviewing those budgeting and enrollment priorities.

The University of Montana’s funding is tied to enrollment, and declining enrollment has proven to be a significant financial challenge over the last several years. The school is now reevaluating its academic and administrative priorities.

The University of Montana's sustainability efforts received a "bronze" rating Tuesday from a nonprofit organization promoting sustainability in higher education.

UM's Sustainability Coordinator Eva Rocke says UM fell just 2.2 points shy of a silver rating from the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education. She says that offers both hope and a roadmap for improvement.

University of Montana officials have revealed details of a new voluntary severance package designed to entice eligible staffers to leave UM. UM this year has already presented two buyout rounds to faculty.
