Description

n the 1850s extraordinary courage brought the Sisters of Providence to Montana on a mission to care for and educate those who weren't being served. That spirit is still alive at the University of Great Falls.

Today, our students cultivate their own individual styles of uncommon courage, exploring personal frontiers as they prepare for living and making a living. We ask them to question what it means to be human in the 21st century. They examine the life of the mind and what it takes to be a productive human being. They contemplate spiritual and religious dimensions of life.

Whatever their individual backgrounds, something deep inside moved and inspired them all to create brighter futures for themselves.
