scheduling flexibility;

creating opportunities for faculty development


“…our state’s future is going to be determined,
in large part, by our ability to educate our
citizens so they can compete globally.
Currently, we are below the national average in
the percentage of our population with college
degrees, so there is much to do.


Oklahoma is fortunate that Gov. Brad Henry
and our Legislature value higher education as
an engine for economic growth “
