OU/OSU Study Committee, SB 1009.
Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, Oklahoma City.
An Oklahoma State Legislature directive formed a committee to study University of Oklahoma (OU) and Oklahoma State University (OSU) services and programs and make recommendations for enhancement. The role of Oklahoma's two comprehensive research universities in the future of the state was the Committee's overriding consideration. Much discussion focused on leadership, differentiation and cooperation between OU/OSU, and differentiation from other tiers. In its work the Committee reviewed materials and convened three times to discuss issues and to reach consensus on several public policy issues. The Committee recommended that with regard to mission, doctoral programs be limited to OU and OSU; that duplication in programs be eliminated; that the two systems take the lead in technological uses for instructional delivery; and that governance of teaching hospitals and osteopathic education be changed. With regard to admissions standards the Committee's key recommendation is that OU and OSU take a strong lead in setting standards of excellence and high expectations for entering students. Finally, with regard to outreach centers the Committee advised that no additional higher education centers be established. Appended are the consensus statements, a set of meeting records, lists of Committee members and study guides, and the statute establishing and charging the Committee. (JB)
