The OU Speakers Service is administered by the OU Faculty Senate. Participantsí travel expenses are provided by the OU Foundation. To request a speaker from the OU Speakers Service, simply complete the online request form below. The form will ask you for basic information about the event/meeting that we will need in order to process your request.
Please provide as much information as possible.
Submit multiple forms for multiple events. Do not try to list multiple dates/events/meetings on one form.
If some of your information is yet "to be determined" - no problem - just make a note of it as you fill out the form.
We recommend you select a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choice speaker in case your desired speaker is unavailable. Please see our List of Speakers and Topics.
Book as far in advance as possible. We recommend at least three to four weeks in advance of when you want the speaker to be confirmed. If you have a "press or printing deadline" be sure to take that into account when requesting your speaker.
The earlier we receive your request, the better chance we have of scheduling your first choice. However, please understand that our speakers are employees of the university and their speaking must be scheduled in the context of other responsibilities.
Response times may be slower when OU is not in session such as Winter Break and some of our speakers are unavailable or have limited availability during the summer months of May, June, July, and August.
When you hit "submit", the completed request form will automatically be sent to the OU Speakers Service. You should receive an email in the next few days confirming the receipt of your form. We will then follow up with you about your request once it has been reviewed.
If you are unable to complete the online form below or would prefer to download, complete, save, and then email/fax a fillable PDF request form, a PDF version of this form is available at: OU Speaker Service Request Form.
If you would like a speaker or topic not on the list or have questions about the OU Speakers Service, please contact the OU Faculty Senate office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (405) 325-6789.
Thank you for your interest in the OU Speakers Service.
