O'Connor Center for the Rocky Mountain West
The O’Connor Center for the Rocky Mountain West is a regional studies and public education program of the University of Montana, Missoula. It focuses its work on the Interior West of North America that straddles the Rocky Mountains – the spine of North America and “headwaters” for many of the continent’s major rivers. The University of Montana lies at the center of this large trans-national region. Through cross-disciplinary programs in research, writing, and public education, the Center explores the region’s rich history, current trends and challenges, and aspirations.
