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