The Institute for Tourism and Recreation Research was created in 1987 to conduct research on travel, recreation and tourism. Located in The University of Montana, College of Forestry and Conservation, ITRR serves as the research arm for Montana's tourism and recreation industry. Its overall mission is to provide information that will help the industry make informed decisions about planning, promotion and management. Thus, the research conducted is designed to assist both private firms and public agencies that provide facilities and services to visitors. The Institute's research is funded by two general sources. Studies of statewide significance are supported by a portion of the revenues from the state Lodging Facility Use Tax. More specialized studies of interest to particular regions, counties, agencies or businesses are funded through cooperative agreements, grants or contracts. ITRR provides some opportunities for Research Assistantships for graduate students enrolled in the Society and Conservation Department in the UM College of Forestry and Conservation.
