Mewbourne College of Earth & Energy
On Nov. 2, 2007, the College of Earth and Energy was renamed in honor of OU alumnus, Curtis Mewbourne, of Tyler, Texas. In recognition of his outstanding and longtime support of the University of Oklahoma and its programs in petroleum and geological engineering, and for his pioneering leadership in the field, the newest college at OU was renamed the Mewbourne College of Earth and Energy. Mewbourne is a 1958 OU petroleum engineering graduate and founder of Mewbourne Oil Co.
Included in the college are the Mewbourne School of Petroleum and Geological Engineering, the ConocoPhillips School of Geology and Geophysics, and the Oklahoma Geological Survey.
