UMW is the most affordable four-year-old university in Montana The university`s mascot is Monte, a grizzly bear. In 1897, a young live bear was traveling with the UM football team, then known as the Bears (the name “Grizzlies” was adopted in 1923). Many live bears, which served as university mascots, were first called Teddy, then Fessy and finally, in the 1960s, cocoa. The UM costumed mascot in the 1980s, called Otto, wore a variety of cheerful outfits to entertain the public at grizzly football games. Monte (for Montana) was born in the fall of 1993 in the Missoula Mountains. National Champion Mascot of the Year 2002/03 and 2004/2005 (Capital One/ESPN) became a “motorcyclist, breakdancing, back flipping, slam-dunking, Movie-Making, Crowd-Surfing, Goal Post Smashing, Prank-pull-pull superstar”.  Montana Kaimin was founded in 1898 and is the student-run university newspaper. It`s independent of the university.

MYTHUS: The legislature adapts the funding of all the costs of the salary plan to the university system. FACT: During negotiations between the State of Montana and the MPEA, the state generally assesses the cost of salary proposals by involving all employees of the university system, regardless of the fact that the state is not legally entitled to negotiate with the MPEA on behalf of the staff of the university system. Legislative power is then presented with the cost of salary increases for state and university staff, although negotiations between the university system and the MPEA were generally not concluded prior to legislative action. Funding for the legislative system payment plan for the university system is based on the agreement negotiated between the MPEA and the Montana State Board of Governors. Historically, the amount of appropriation has financed only about 45 per cent of the costs of the classified payroll plan for university system employees in positions funded by General Fund Dollars. It goes without saying that no funding is allocated to organizations funded by designated sources of assistance or assistance. At the University of Montana – Missoula are about 45 percent of the staff positions of the State General Fund. This means that Parliament funds only about 21 per cent of the total cost of the salary plan for all university staff, regardless of the source of funding.
An act of the congress of February 18, 1881 dedicated 72 sections (46,000 Acres (72 sq; 190 km2) in the territory of Montana for the creation of the University.
