Responsible Stewards

RUSO institutions are responsible stewards of the funds appropriated to us.  In 2011, Oklahoma’s public institutions of higher education received 41% of their budget from state appropriations. Compare that to 1988, when state appropriations totaled 75.3%. RUSO institutions are educating more students with less tax support per student.  And taxpayer investment is 31.3% below the national average.  We’ve added more students and increased our number of graduates through responsible stewardship.

Smart Investments

RUSO institutions are a smart investment for Oklahoma families with competitive tuition and convenient locations.

Variety & Innovation

RUSO institutions offer hundreds of majors, including programs that are among the most innovative in the nation.


Our institutions build Oklahoma’s creative capital with less resources and smart stewardship.
