Distinguished Visiting Professors
and Guest Artists

By establishing visiting professor and guest artist positions within Theatre and Dance, Visual and Media Arts, and Music, the College of the Arts and Media can attract distinguished leaders who enhance our foundational curricula. Your gift helps create these positions that are vital for educating students on new and constantly evolving areas of artistic practice.

Student and Faculty Field Study and Outreach

Transformational experiences like study abroad, internships and residencies help students and faculty grow as individuals and in their careers. With support, we can offer more opportunities like these and also send additional students and faculty to conferences and workshops, have their work adjudicated by peers, help them make connections in the field and augment their areas of expertise.


Impact Funds across campus help ensure UM’s excellence by providing discretionary support where and when it is needed most. With your gift, the College of the Arts and Media can provide essential opportunities and resources that students and faculty need to thrive.

Montana Museum of Art and Culture Impact Fund

MMAC is home to one of the oldest and most prominent fine art collections in the Rocky Mountain Northwest. Its staff maintains more than 11,000 objects, including significant historic and contemporary artworks. Your gifts to the MMAC Impact Fund help us care for and display these treasures, host thoughtful and engaging public programs, and share our collection online and through other outreach.

Nowhere does student achievement shine as bright as in the University of Montana’s College of the Arts and Media. UMArts offers a premier artistic and technical education for undergraduate and graduate students in music, theatre, dance, art, film and new media. With your support for faculty and students, we will cultivate a campus of creative thinkers, innovators and passionate professionals.
