Seth Bodnar Hired To Increase Attendance In Missoula
The new president of the University of Montana stopped by the Voices of Montana studios Tuesday to introduce himself to the staff at northern broadcasting and to the state of Montana on our statewide radio show.
Seth Bodnar was chosen the eighteenth president of the University of Montana in October of last year and started the job this January first. Mr Bodnar has a very impressive resume including attending both West Point and the University of Oxford.
He comes to the University of Montana during one of the most challenging times in the university’s long history with declining attendance and negative press seemingly being the norm over the last 5 to 10 years.
During our hour-long interview we discuss the difference between Montana State University in Bozeman and the University of Montana and how they plan to turn around their sagging attendance in Missoula.
