This briefing book contains several documents prepared by the Montana University System for educators, policymakers, and other interested parties. The "Montana University System Fact Sheet" provides factual information about funding, costs, quality, and the productivity of the university system. The "Montana University System Message" describes the themes that are important for public understanding of the accomplishments and needs of the university system. An initiative, "Making Postsecondary Education and Training More Accessible for Montanans," is included, representing the only new proposal by the Board of Regents for consideration by the governor and the state legislature. Also included is a summary of "Opportunities in Workforce and Rural Development" that suggests ways the university system could improve the Montana economy. "The Montana University System--An Investment in Montana's Future" provides details about the opportunities listed in the summary. "The Montana University System: The Financial Context" provides the fiscal analysis that guided the development of the original budget request of the university system. Also included is the "Joint Subcommittee on Postsecondary Education Policy and Budget," which provides goals and accountability measures for higher education. The final document, the "Strategic Plan: Mission, Goals, and Objectives of the Montana University System," is the document approved by the Board of Regents to provide strategic direction to the entire university system.
