Welcome to Family Weekend at
the University of Montana!
Many people had a hand in organizing this special weekend
in your honor. We want you to enjoy your time with your
student, experience all the University of Montana has to
offer and get to know other families of UM students.
UM leads the nation in Udall Scholars and has more Rhodes
Scholars than any university in the Rocky Mountain West.
Our faculty is second to none. Last year, three UM professors
were named to an elite list of the world’s most influential
minds in science. For the past three years, UM has been
ranked among the top 350 universities worldwide.
UM students volunteer 221,832 hours annually to their
community, and Missoula is ranked among the top college
towns in the U.S. While you are here, we hope you take time
to explore this storied University and exceptional town.
We are here to help your students succeed. Please let us
know how we can provide you with more information or
resources while you are on campus. We want to help make
your Family Weekend experience enjoyable. Ask any Family
Weekend volunteer for help.

event coordinator, at 971-322-5402.

College of Humanities and Sciences Award for Teaching
Across the Curriculum
Nate McCrady
Einstein’s special theory of relativity is one of the greatest
scientific discoveries, yet most people have only a vague
notion of what relativity is. In this course, industrious students
with a working knowledge of algebra and trigonometry
and a modest exposure to calculus will gain insight into the
counterintuitive nature of space and time. Einstein’s relativity
theory is introduced from a modern, geometrically oriented
perspective, using space-time diagrams throughout and
emphasizing the deep connection between time and space.
Note: This classroom has very limited space. First come, first
served.
Fundamentals of Forensic Science
1:10 p.m., McGill Hall Room 210
Faculty member Gary Kerr, winner of the Missoula
Independent’s Reader Choice Award “Best UM Professor”

about the world. Be introduced to the basics of a wide variety
of sciences and explore the breadth of forensic science as
practiced in crime labs in the 21st century. Understand the
roles of police, forensic scientists, attorneys, expert witnesses
and others in the process of a criminal investigation and trial.
Gary Kerr
Global Tectonics

Associate Professor Rebecca Bendick Kier
Rebecca Bendick
Kier
This course examines plate tectonics of the Earth and other
planets. Students learn methods for observing tectonic
processes and phenomena, as well as for developing a
theory of the underlying physics. This course studies a wide
range of time and spatial scales influenced by tectonics,
from earthquakes to the growth of oceans and mountains.
Today’s class will include a group discussion of case studies
and calculations of the effects of mantle convection and plate
forces. What forces are big enough to move plates? Why are
tectonic boundaries located where they are? How might they
change in time and space?

Current exhibits on campus
“The Intimate Diebenkorn:
Drawings 1949-1992”
Montana Museum of Art & Culture, Meloy
and Paxon galleries, PAR/TV Center
Gallery hours:
Noon-6 p.m. Friday, noon-3 p.m. Saturday.
MMAC is one of four venues to host
this national traveling exhibition of rare
works on paper by Richard Diebenkorn,
which portray a richly intimate glimpse
into the artist’s evolution spanning more
than 40 years. The exhibition, curated
by Chester Arnold, chair of the Fine Arts
Department at College of Marin, courtesy
of the Richard Diebenkorn Foundation,
features 40 pieces, 38 of which have
never before been publicly viewed.
The exhibition includes pencil and ink
drawings on paper, collages of torn paper
and watercolors, and is supported by
two volumes published on the occasion
of the exhibition: “Richard Diebenkorn:
Abstractions on Paper” and “Richard
Diebenkorn: From the Model” published
by Kelly’s Cove Press.
“Variations of Unlimited
Sequence”
Gallery of Visual Arts, Social Science
Building, first floor.
Gallery hours: 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday.
The exhibit combines audio recordings
with suspended and layered construction
drawings by Billings artist Jodi Lightner.
The works in “Variations of Unlimited
Sequence” are a part of an ongoing
drawing series by Lightner that examines
the patterns and perception of space
that develop as people interact within
architectural structures. By suspending
large-scale drawings from the ceiling,
viewers will have the opportunity to
move in and around the works, becoming
increasingly aware of how they are forced
to move through the space. Lightner
suggests that the behavior and attitudes
created through repetitive patterns of
interaction define a particular place.
“Black Lake Ice”
University Center Gallery, UC Room 227
Gallery hours: 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Friday.
Artist Sarah Moore’s exhibition “Black Lake

FAMILY WEEKEND 2015
Up with Montana, boys,
down with the foe,
Good ol’ Grizzlies
out for a victory;
We’ll shoot our backs
’round the foemen’s line;
Hot time is coming now,
oh, brother mine.
Up with Montana, boys,
down with the foe,
Good old Grizzlies
triumph today;
And the squeal of the pig
will float on the air;
From the tummy of
the Grizzly Bear.
