Project CEO Survey

Student Affairs seeks to assist students in realizing their goals (academic, personal, and professional).  Many of these goals are accomplished through the co-curricular experience.  Please help Student Affairs assess if goals are being met by completing the Co-Curricular Experience Outcomes survey (Project CEO).

This anonymous survey may take up to 15 minutes to complete and will provide information for Student Affairs to assist generations of students to come.



In light of incidents on other campuses and to further enhance responsiveness, the University of Oklahoma has established a 24-hour Reporting Hotline.  The hotline will serve as an added protection for OU students, handling reports of bias, discrimination, physical or mental harassment or misconduct by OU community members.  The 24-hour Reporting Hotline can be accessed by calling 844-428-6531.

Community Dialogue Workshops

Student Affairs is excited to offer another semester of the Community Dialogue Workshops. The Workshops are the result of Greek community feedback and requests for further education in the areas of diversity and inclusion. The Workshops are open to all OU students, optional, self-paced, and can be completed in any order.

The Workshops are taught by OU faculty and staff members and designed to (1) teach key concepts, (2) reflect on personal participation in troubling dynamics, and (3) equip students with the tools to actively participate in dialogue and situations regarding ableism, classism, racism, and sexism. Once all four workshops and the LGBTQ Ally training are completed, students may request their certificate of completion.

Seating is limited, so register today!
