Strategic Plan


Montana Tech, through exemplary undergraduate and graduate education, workforce development, research, and service, builds on a strong heritage in engineering, science, and technology that blends theory with practice in meeting the changing needs of society and the responsible development and use of natural resources.

Dear Montana Tech Community,

I am extremely proud to be part of an institution that is making such a positive impact on the world, nation, state, and community. I believe in our mission, and the role Montana Tech plays in developing quality graduates and leaders is being recognized now more than ever; our Board of Regents and Higher Education Commissioner are recognizing our unique mission and working with Montana Tech to provide a governing structure that encourages us to excel.

In this context, Montana Tech is committed to inclusive and deliberate planning and renewal. Our Strategic Plan is one part of this process, and I consider it a living document that will help guide us over the next several years. As you read our Strategic Plan, my expectation is you will embrace it as indeed being “our plan.” The plan was developed with input from as many Montana Tech constituents as we could involve and thus reflects our goals and aspirations. The plan is a framework on which we will build and implement action plans, prioritized programs and resources, and in time allow us to celebrate our achievements.

I believe these are exciting times, and I am looking forward to the future of Montana Tech.

Best regards,

Chancellor Blackketter Signature
