Montana University System
|Education in the United States|
The Montana University System (MUS) was created on July 1, 1994, when the Montana Board of Regents of Higher Education restructured the state's public colleges and universities, with the goal of streamlining the state's higher education in the wake of decreased state funding. It has sixteen campuses divided among the two state university systems, and community colleges.
Each university subsystem has campuses around the state, with a university President at the main campus, Chancellors at each of the three smaller units, and Deans/CEOs at the two-year comprehensive colleges. The main campus gives administrative and library assistance to the smaller units, but each unit sets its own curriculum with Board of Regents approval.
