Impact. That’s what the President’s Associates do.

We believe in and invest in ideas that allow students to achieve their dreams,
transform communities, and save lives. Both in and out of the classroom,
OU is a place that encourages innovation and discovery, the pursuit of knowledge,
and thoughtful engagement with peers and teachers.

President’s Associates make that happen.
Together we can ensure that OU’s tradition of excellence lives on!

The University of Oklahoma President’s Associates program connects alumni and friends of the University who share a collective passion for OU. In an ever-changing environment, their annual leadership donations support the mission of the University in promoting efforts to help students achieve their educational goals.

Since its beginning in 1979, the President’s Associates program has provided unrestricted funding that allows OU’s president to deal with critical issues and pursue initiatives that enrich OU’s academic mission. Because donors can designate half of their gift to a favorite college or program, Associates funds provide the same kind of opportunities to OU deans and program directors.

Membership is based on annual donations to the program; payments may be made in monthly payments or a lump sum. Click here to learn more about membership levels and the benefits included.
