Public service is the most noble human endeavor. When I think about my next chapter, I want to help inspire another generation to get involved, to see the world, to have the kind of experiences I did. Of all the things I’ve done since leaving public office, there is nothing that compares with the Baucus Institute.Max Baucus
Max Baucus completed his roles as the United States Ambassador to China and a six-term United States Senator of Montana with his next big ambition: building a new generation of public servants. He put his vision into action by creating the Max S. Baucus Institute, housed at the University of Montana’s Blewett School of Law, in the heart of the Rocky Mountain West.
Today, the Baucus Institute is growing innovative programs that inspire and prepare students to become public servants who carry the spirit of integrity, consensus-building, and grit for which Montana is known.
With the partnership of generous donors, the Baucus Institute is poised to expand student learning opportunities from Montana to Washington, D.C. to China that will build on the Baucus legacy and create new leaders for tomorrow.
