The Montana University System faces $4.5 million in budget cuts after the Legislature’s special session, but no furloughs are expected on the Bozeman campus. Montana State University President Waded Cruzado said Thursday that while she still needs more specifics on how the University System will carry out its share of state budget cuts, she plans to protect MSU’s academic core, its faculty and staff. “Furloughs are not on the horizon at Montana State University,” Cruzado stated.
The Board of Regents voted unanimously Thursday to hire Seth Bodnar as the University of Montana’s next president, a decision applauded by campus leaders from Missoula to Bozeman. The regents voted 6-0 to hire Bodnar to lead the UM Missoula campus, which has been struggling in recent years with falling enrollment and demoralizing budget cuts. The vote was greeted with standing applause by leaders from all campuses attending the regents meeting at Montana State University.
Professors voted 24-5 to table the proposal, after Jessi Smith, psychology professor and faculty senator, argued that more time was needed to collect data on Koch-funded research centers elsewhere in the nation. “We need more time to fully understand what we’re getting into,” Smith said. MSU’s Faculty Senate has only had one hour-long debate, she said, and that “is simply not enough.”Tabling the proposal means it’s set aside — possibly for a few weeks, or possibly forever.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
