Incorporated in 1931, Montana State University Bookstore, Inc. (MSU Bookstore), is a student-faculty owned
cooperative that serves Montana State University and the surrounding Gallatin Valley.

As a student-faculty owned co-op, the MSU Bookstore seeks to provide the lowest possible pricing on textbooks for our students. This is done through rebating the excess profits of previous years’ sales back to our student owners through aggressive textbook discounting. This ongoing mission has allowed us to be a national leader in offering
competitive course material prices to our students.

Each MSU Bookstore employee is expected to promote an atmosphere of courtesy and respect within the MSU Bookstore team by demonstrating positive leadership skills that build up the culture within the MSU Bookstore. Some of these skills include such things as collaborative problem-solving, calm and inclusive speech, and practicing a teamwork mindset over a harsh or authoritative delegation style. It is also a baseline expectation that all MSU Bookstore employees celebrate our customers by engaging, advocating for, and contributing to the feeling of acceptance and
inclusiveness for all MSU Bookstore customers and employees.
