RE:                         Campus Report for the September 2000 Board of Regents’ Meeting




When the Montana University System was restructured in 1994, the colleges of technology were charged with

responding to the needs of business and industry.  This report provides an update on the recent and continuing

efforts of Montana State University—Great Falls College of Technology to realize that restructuring vision.










How can the Montana University System ensure that the colleges of technology are responsive to workforce needs?  A local business leader provided the best answer when MSU President Geoffrey Gamble visited Great Falls last month.  “Stay flexible,” he advised.  “This College has the flexibility to respond quickly and effectively.  We like that.”
