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.
