African American Programs and Services welcomes you to the University of Oklahoma and wants to be a strong support system for you at OU! As a student here at the university there are a multitude of opportunities to get involved. Allow us to aid you in the successful pursuit of your college degree, and take advantage of the unique position you are in as an OU student to grow as an individual as we collectively grow as a community!

African American Programs and Services is focused on retaining and graduating African American students by helping them make the most of their academic opportunities at the University of Oklahoma.  In doing this, we provide our students with positive campus life experiences, and prepare them for successful careers and lives after graduation.  Through campus and community involvement, mentorship, leadership development, and cultural support we guide students to the best versions of themselves. This is most commonly achieved through involvement in our organizations geared toward Black students and our nine historically Black Greek letter organizations.

Student Life is located in Suite 370 in the Oklahoma Memorial Union. We encourage you to visit us early and often!
