Your support of S.E.A. Change Initiative for UM Students will provide UM undergraduate and Missoula-area high school and middle school students with educational opportunities to be empowered change makers who understand, navigate and address societal biases.
These students will grow into successful and influential professionals committed to gender equity. Essential future contributions will support holistic programming in four areas: mentorship and research, mindset building, entrepreneurship and leadership.
UM continues to invite support of critical programs and services that advance efforts to sustain a safe campus that accelerates and empowers all students.
