About Us

Welcome to the Montana Race Project

Students in UM’s “Diversity in Media” class gathered six word essays by working with all 16 Montana University System campuses along with Montana’s seven tribal colleges. The class' goal was to reach out to all 47,000 students enrolled in the Montana University System. Additionally, the students invited anyone who lives in Montana to submit an essay. Interested individuals shared their essays online, and they could also share anonymously. The project is also on Facebook.

this photo shows the poster created for the MTRP presentation. The poster is a large cutout of the state of Montana. The background is black and the essays are arranged across it.
