The MUS 2-Year Commission was formed after the passage of HB 754 (Vinton) during the 2019 Legislative Session.

The temporary 16-member commission is tasked with

  • examining the impacts of incorporating the former vocational-technical centers into the Montana University System as 2-year campuses attached to 4-year campuses; and 
  • considering whether a different organizational structure would better serve Montanans.

The commission is required to meet quarterly and prepare a report of findings and recommendations to the 67th (2021) Legislature.
