KALISPELL- Adding computers to classrooms and helping students transition from school to the "real world" are some of many improvements the University of Montana president said he'd like to see.
UM President Royce Engstrom spoke Friday front of the Glacier Pachyderm Club in Kalispell, and talked about upcoming programs like leadership initiatives and bringing economic relevance to class research projects.
So far, he says he's seeing a good response from students, especially when it comes to increasing safety and awareness efforts on campus.
"We're very proud of our students for saying, 'we want to be a part of the solution to this problem. We care deeply about our students and we're going to do everything we can as students to make this a safe campus atmosphere."
Engstrom also said eventually, he'd like to ensure every single classroom on campus is filled with at least one computer.
