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.
