The education conference at the University of Montana, Defining a 21st Century Education for a Vibrant Democracy, will be streamed for those who cannot attend in person. 

Associate Provost For Dynamic Learning, Nathan Lindsay, says the conference will feature several major keynote speakers.

“The first keynote speaker is the United States Secretary of Labor, Thomas Perez,” Lindsay said. “Also, from the American Association of Colleges and Universities, Debra Humphreys, along with Presidential Adviser for Global Initiatives with the American Council on Education, Patti McGill.”

UM President Royce Engstrom said the conference is meant to be inclusive, and he encourages all faculty and staff members, students, administrators and community members to attend the conference as their schedules permit.

“Those who attend will help define the future directions of our University,” he said. “We want insightful, constructive dialogue to help enhance this great place of learning.”
