Dean's Welcome

Daniel Bingham

May I personally extend a warm welcome to you from Helena College University of Montana, one of Montana’s premier centers of higher education since 1939. We are excited that you have expressed an interest in our College and are considering what the future might hold for you through the completion of one of our 34 degrees or certificates.

From my own personal experience, I know that selecting a college or educational program can, at times, seem like an overwhelming venture. The staff and faculty at Helena College have developed a wide range of academic and student support services to help you succeed, and they would be happy to personally guide you through your educational endeavors. They can also help you identify potential scholarship, financial aid, and work study opportunities.

Helena College is a vibrant center of higher education committed to educational excellence and your personal success. Responding to the educational needs of our community of learners, the College has completed a ten-year strategic plan focused on building the educational capacity to meet the essential elements of a 21st Century College. The faculty and staff at Helena College are committed to the ongoing development of our instructional facilities and equipment and to a learning environment that fosters opportunity for academic program development, diversification, schedule expansion, and the capacity to accommodate the needs of Montana’s growing workforce. As a comprehensive two-year college, we are focused on achieving our mission to succeed in meeting the needs of our community through the creation of a responsible and accessible learning environment.

I believe you will find Helena College is an exciting place to explore a variety of career opportunities, to prepare to transfer to a four year college, to develop a diverse range of technical skills, or to simply take a class for personal enrichment. Our carefully designed degrees, certificates, and personal interest courses will prepare you for the challenging world in which we live and for any new horizons you may face in the future.

I am convinced Helena College will prove to be an excellent choice for you, and I extend a personal invitation to explore the many academic programs, activities, and services that we have to offer.
