Named after the first dean of the College of Business at the University of Oklahoma, the Arthur B. Adams Society is a way for alumni and friends to come together as a network of supporters within the Price College of Business.
Some of the areas in Price College that are assisted through the society include study abroad scholarships, undergraduate and graduate professional development, faculty resources, the JCPenney Leadership program, academic scholarships and academic division programming. Members of the society designate to which area of the college they would like to contribute. This includes the Dean's Excellence Fund, which directs the gift to where the need is greatest in Price College.
Members of the Arthur B. Adams Society are invited to special events and receptions, including a gala event each fall.
Membership is open to all alumni and friends of Price College who are actively contributing $5,000 annually for five years or have made a one-time investment to Price College of at least $25,000. Previous contributions to the college are credited toward membership requirements.
