Former provost Royce Engstrom has been sworn in as the 17th president of the University of Montana.

Though he has served as president for the last six months, Monday was the first opportunity before commencement when all the invited guests, which included Gov. Brian Schweitzer, could attend.

The Missoulian reports that during the ceremony, Engstrom stressed the need for more global thinking and an interdisciplinary approach to looking at real-world problems. He also called for heightened attention to research and scrutiny of the ever-increasing need for resources and their costs.

Engstrom came to UM in 2007 and served as provost until his promotion to the presidency. He replaced George Dennison, who announced in January 2010 his plans to retire after 20 years leading the Missoula university.
