The O’Connor Center for the Rocky Mountain West is a regional studies and public education program of The University of Montana in Missoula.  It focuses on the Interior West of North America – the region straddling the Rocky Mountains of the United States and Canada.  The University of Montana lies at the center of this region.  Through cross-disciplinary programs in research, teaching, and public education, the Center explores the region's rich history, current challenges, and emerging opportunities.
