The Arthur B. Adams Society
Named after the first dean of the College of Business at the University of Oklahoma, the Arthur B. Adams Society is a way for alumni and friends to come together as a network of supporters within the Price College of Business. This newly established society supports a multitude of opportunities for Price students that will make a meaningful difference in their lives. Some of the areas in Price College that are assisted through the society include study abroad scholarships, undergraduate and graduate professional development, faculty resources, the JCPenney Leadership program, academic scholarships and academic division programming. Members of the society designate to which area of the college they would like to contribute. This includes the Dean's Excellence Fund, which directs the gift to where the need is greatest in Price College.
Members of the Arthur B. Adams Society are invited to special events and receptions, including a gala event each fall. Additionally, all society members may be included in the university-wide President's Associates program for the duration of their contribution to the society.
Interim Dean Wayne Thomas greatly values the support these members give the college and believes having such a loyal and supportive group of donors is considered a mark of an outstanding business school. "These are rapidly changing times in higher education, and this pace of innovation is best supported by the flexibility in funding that the Adams Society provides. As a primary vehicle for targeted investment, the Adams Society maximizes the college’s ability to generate business insights and prepare future leaders through transformational experiences in education. As members of the society, my wife Julee and I have witnessed, first-hand, the impact of the society as our faculty, staff, alumni and supporters unite to prepare our students for future achievement.”
