Our tradition runs deep, throughout the Sooner state and across the country, and it’s a tradition that donors empower. With your commitment, we celebrate unparalleled achievement by our student-athletes. As one of a select number of athletics departments in the country that is self-sustaining, OU Athletics continually fosters a world-class experience for over 500 student-athletes because of the philanthropy we receive from the best fan base in the nation. The resources needed to provide this transformational experience for our student-athletes have continued to escalate throughout the years, making your generous support more important than ever before.
At the University of Oklahoma, we are built different, we don’t play catch up, we boldly lead the way by always pressing forward. In the upcoming years, we have a significant opportunity to position our department for future successes.
OU Athletics' top initiatives include:
- Provide the best student-athlete experience in the nation. Every year we see great examples of new, elite student-athletes competing on the biggest stages of their respective sports. Through your generous investment in our student-athletes, we are inspired daily by their stories that truly exemplify our five core values: Masterful, Accountable, Gracious, Inclusive and Competitive. Each value is strategically aligned to create a world – class experience for over 500 student-athletes representing 21 sports.
- Our facilities are aging creating a growing need to once again transform our venues to keep OU at the top. We will embark on several state-of-the-art facility projects to meet the needs of our student-athletes
