MISSOULA- University of Montana President Royce Engstrom will address the challenges and accomplishments of UM during the annual State of the University" address on Friday, although he didn't go into details about what he'd discuss after a year that's included investigations into how UM handles rape reports.
Engstrom says he started writing his speech "in his head" the past couple months, but he's spent the last week putting it down on paper. He said he puts a lot of thought into this address because it's a reflection on the university as a whole at the beginning of a new year.
"I take a great deal of time to work on that address to make sure that I outline, clearly, my goals and expectations for the year, but also to take time to congratulate and thank people for the terrific work that they do here at the University of Montana."
Engstrom's State of the University address starts at 10 a.m. at the Montana Theatre on campus.
