This year’s Economic Outlook Seminars will examine the question of how, and how well, Montana’s higher education system returns value. The Future of Higher Education in Montana - will be presented by Robert Nystuen, vice chair of the Montana University Board of Regents. He is president at Glacier Bank in Kalispell.
In 2015, Nystuen was appointed by Governor Steve Bullock to the board of regents, which is responsible for the Montana University System, becoming vice chair in the summer of 2017.
Nystuen’s selection for the board of regents connects Montana’s higher education system and the business community, “a relationship that is increasingly vital in the modern economic landscape,” according to Nystuen. He is an experienced executive who will provide insight on that connection during the 2018 Economic Outlook Seminar tour. The tour begins January 23 in Helena and will be presented by the Bureau of Business and Economic Research of the University of Montana in nine Montana communities. It will be held in Billings, January 30, Doubletree Hotel.
