The Bitterroot College University of Montana in Hamilton will have their regular monthly advisory council meeting in Stevensville this week. The public board often meets outside the college to involve the whole Bitterroot Valley. The November 28 meeting will be at the Stevensville Middle School, 300 Park Avenue, at 3 p.m. The council is comprised of a dozen interested members of the community who help determine courses and the direction of the institution. On this month's agenda will be a report from Stevensville School Superintendent Bob Moore, an update on a sustainable solar project and a UM update from Provost Nathan Lindsay.

Spring semester at the Hamilton campus starts January 10th. Course information is available online and at the college offices at 9th and Main in Hamilton. And, there's always something interesting going on at the FabLab. The Bitterroot College number is 406-375-0100.
