Higher Education Commissioner to Hold Listening Session at Montana Tech



Recently appointed Commissioner of Higher Education Clayton Christian will host a public listening session at Montana Tech from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 2, in the Copper Lounge.

After a welcome and introduction by University of Montana President Royce Engstrom, Christian will share a brief overview of system goals and then invite questions and comments from members of the campus and Butte communities regarding their perspectives on Montana higher education.

Christian formerly served as Montana Board of Regents chairman. He recently was hired to replace Sheila Stearns as the new commissioner of higher education. Stearns announced her retirement last May after serving in the role since 2003.
