About Us

Our staff work collaboratively with all areas of university life to increase opportunities for student achievement and to help students remove barriers they may encounter along their path to graduation.

Retention Initiatives

OU faculty and staff are invested in helping students achieve success. The University of Oklahoma continues to be among the nation's top universities in terms of gains in graduation rates. Graduation rates are calculated based on the percentage of students who enter the university as first time, full time (12 or more OU hours) students in a specific fall term and graduate from the university within six years.

We coordinate various initiatives aimed at impacting student success. Some of these initiatives are listed below.

Compass Network

Compass Network is an initiative aimed at helping students overcome barriers to their success at OU. Students work one-on-one with our staff to create an action plan to address the issue(s) impeding their success. Students should contact the Compass Network with any concern that they feel is getting in the way of their ability to create success.

Sooner Success

The Sooner Success Program is an individualized program where Academic Life  Coaches meet regularly with students to discuss academic services on campus, goal setting, career and major choices, getting involved on campus, time management, study skills and more.  Coaches will continue to be a resource to their students throughout the student’s time at OU.
