The Annual Profile of the University of Oklahoma - also known as the OU Fact Book - is published each year in February/March with data as of the most recently completed fall and/or fiscal year. The Fact Book is a comprehensive source of data about students, faculty and staff, finances, and research activity at OU. It includes summaries for the entire University of Oklahoma, as well as information for each of the three physical campuses of which OU is comprised: Norman Campus, Health Sciences Center, and OU-Tulsa.
Over the past few years, the University of Oklahoma has grown more complex in structure, causing some confusion about which data are appropriate to use for official reporting. To address this problem, IRR has decided to apply two changes to our reporting process:
(1) We will simplify our reports as much as possible, removing data that - while accurate - tended to cause a lot of confusion and has been frequently misused.
(2) We will better label, note, and otherwise document our reports to more clearly explain both what the report includes/excludes and suggest appropriate uses for the data therein.
Given the planned changes to the Fact Book, we will not be publishing the tables here on our website according to their old numbering structure. All tables will be renumbered once we have completed our overhaul of the entire report, and at that time we will provide a table of contents similar to what has been provided in the past. Until then, we will start posting updated content by subject-area groupings and table name.
Copies of the previous full years of the Fact Book are provided below.
