Winter break is well behind us — hopefully the “thundersleet” we got here in Norman, is too — and a new semester is in full swing.
At the time of my last message, we were days away from recognizing a new class of Price College alums. We will do that again soon on May 13 at 12:30 p.m. in the Lloyd Noble Center.
While graduation is still a few months off, there is a lot happening right now at Oklahoma’s leading business school.
First, we welcomed seven new faculty members this semester, for a total of 22 this academic year. This brings our total complement of full-time faculty to 138. This growth is a result of our Bigger, Broader, Better strategic plan and will further elevate Price College as a top-tier producer of impactful research, thought leadership and academic talent.
U.S. News & World Report recently validated progress on our strategic plan with the release of its top online business master’s programs rankings. Our online M.S. programs in accounting and finance rose another spot in the national rankings, to 66th.
I am also pleased to announce that Price College has been joined by Gary Jones as our new director of diversity, equity and inclusion and Monique Browder as our new alumni relations manager. You can learn more about both a bit further down in the newsletter.
Finally, I would like to remind you Giving Day is just around the corner on April 13. Last year’s Giving Day was a tremendous success, and we’re looking to top it this year.
We appreciate your support in helping Price College develop the future leaders our state and nation need. Now, please enjoy the latest news from Price College and all the latest achievements of our students, faculty, staff and alumni.
