Brief History

The first Western Pennsylvania Undergraduate Psychological Conference (WPUPC) was held at Alliance College in 1973 and was comprised of six institutions. Since that first meeting, we have grown to include 12 member institutions. More importantly, thousands of students have presented at WPUPC before graduating and making an impact on their chosen field.
