Welcome to the University of Oklahoma – Tulsa. We appreciate your taking a look at our academic programs, excellent facilities and active student life here at the Schusterman Center, where you’ll find the same proud tradition of Sooner excellence that began on the OU campus in Norman in 1892.
Whether you’re a prospective student, alumnus, or community member, we believe you’ll readily discover evidence of OU-Tulsa’s mission at work: providing the best possible educational experience for our students through excellence in teaching, research, creative activity, and service to our state and society.
Our faculty members possess outstanding credentials, experience and commitment to helping students succeed. I’m proud and impressed to witness the dedication, discipline and accomplishments of OU-Tulsa students, most of whom complete their degrees while balancing work, family and other obligations.
OU-Tulsa’s relationship with Tulsa was founded on a mutual commitment to serve community needs. From the time classes were first offered here through the School of Library and Information Studies in 1957, until today, we’ve designed many of our degree programs with public needs in mind. OU-Tulsa offers more than 30 graduate and selected bachelor’s degree completion programs in Social Work, Nursing, Pharmacy, Education, Human Relations, Engineering, Architecture, Organizational Dynamics, Public Health, Allied Health and Public Administration. Our programs, centers and institutes, and students are a part of Tulsa’s civic fabric. We’re especially proud to partner with more than 100 community agencies, engaged in research, interdisciplinary and service learning opportunities that address some of the Tulsa area’s most pressing challenges.
While you’re here, we hope you’ll also take time to learn about the OU School of Community Medicine, the Tulsa branch campus of the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine. (Visit tulsa.ou.edu/socm. ) The first of its kind in the nation, the school was founded with the explicit purpose of improving the health of all Oklahomans, particularly the rural and urban underserved. OU and The University of Tulsa are collaborating in this exciting medical education program to prepare future physicians and other health care professionals for the complex challenges of health care delivery today. The first class of OU School of Community Medicine students will begin their studies in the fall of 2015.
We’re grateful for your interest in OU-Tulsa and invite you to visit the Schusterman Center campus, situated in a vibrant, easily accessible part of Tulsa. We’re confident you’ll find an exciting learning environment, friendly people, and a sense of what defines OU-Tulsa: dedication to fulfilling the higher aspirations of our students and using our abundant resources to improve the community we all share.
