University of Montana President Seth Bodnar takes the reins

January 7, 2018View for printing

It's tough to beat the M when it comes to favorite places on campus for incoming University of Montana President Seth Bodnar

He's already climbed up the switchbacks while talking with college students.

"When you hike up the M with a group of students, it's actually such a refreshing experience, just physically and mentally," Bodnar said.

As he takes the helm at UM, Bodnar will likely need that enthusiasm and vigor as he faces other steep climbs at the flagship. This month, he steps into the job held by interim President Sheila Stearns, who herself took over after a presidential stepdown in December 2016 following a couple of tumultuous years at UM.
