Western Connections and Community

UHPSI hosts events (social or learning-driven) throughout the year to encourage connections and community among students, staff, and faculty interested in the American West across all of Yale. All are welcome.

A YSE student gives a presentation at WCC’s Pub Talks event on November 15th, 2023.

Western Connections and Community (WCC) offers a series of events to bring together students, faculty, and staff who research, work in, or care about the western United States. It is the nexus for all things western while living in New Haven. The student coordinating team plans and hosts community events, including breakfasts and social hours, and supports professional development and networking opportunities. As the engagement and event branch of Ucross High Plains Stewardship Initiative, WCC originated within the Yale School of the Environment but strives to include and engage with other schools, organizations, and entities within the Yale system.
