The University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma (USAO) is located in the heart of Oklahoma, built upon land donated by a Chickasaw tribal member. Located between the Five Civilized Tribes to the east and the Plains Indian Tribes of the west, the region around USAO is home to over 40 federally recognized Indian tribes. As a state-supported liberal arts college serving a rural population, USAO has long attracted a large number of American Indian college students (13% of enrollment).
The American Indian Arts and Humanities Project is one of two remaining that will complete Phase I as the anchor in a multiyear, comprehensive "Realizing Great Expectations" capital campaign. That campaign will fully restore and rehabilitate the "Oklahoma College for Women National Historic District" listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The USAO Student Leadership Conference will provide students an opportunity to develop and enhance their leadership skills, learn about various leadership topics and network with other leaders on campus. This event will include a keynote speaker and breakout sessions based on various leadership topics. Students, faculty, staff and alumni are encouraged to submit a session proposal to facilitate/present at the conference. If you are interested please fill out the information below.
