Introduction

The University of Montana acknowledges that we are in the aboriginal territories of the Salish and Kalispel people. We honor the path they have always shown us in caring for this place for the generations to come.

The University of Montana’s ESports team is an all-inclusive group providing collaborative, innovative, and leadership opportunities for current and prospective students alike. Through cooperative play, students are empowered to be the best versions of themselves and encourage others to do so as well.
