UNIVERSITY OF TULSA OKLAHOMA

800 S Tucker Dr Tulsa, OK 74104
(918) 631-2000

As a comprehensive, doctoral-degree-granting institution, The University of Tulsa provides undergraduate, graduate, and professional education of the highest quality in the arts, humanities, sciences, business, education, engineering, law, nursing, and applied health sciences.

The University’s mission is nurtured and supported by:

  • exceptional faculty, who draw students into the pursuit of knowledge, introducing them to the pleasures and responsibilities of the life of the mind in a challenging world, and who include in their numbers the 1998-99 Carnegie Foundation Professor of the Year for all U.S. doctoral and research universities, a national Carnegie Foundation Pew Scholar, a Carnegie Foundation Professor of the Year for Oklahoma, a member of the National Academy of Engineering, and four Fellows of the Institute for Advanced Study.
  • a humanities-based general curriculum that stimulates scientific, social, and artistic inquiry, while stressing competence in oral and written communication;
  • graduate, professional, and research programs that foster advanced theoretical development, promote professional preparation, enhance the quality of the faculty, and extend the University’s international reach;
  • substantial library resources and information technology that support research and classroom learning;
  • a residential campus that fosters a sense of community and integrates curricular and extracurricular life; and
  • abundant opportunities for students to undertake community service, internships, and study abroad; to participate in substantive research, often as early as the freshman year; and to study and reflect in ways that foster intellectual, spiritual, and moral growth.

TU’s 200-acre campus is located two miles east of downtown Tulsa, a metropolitan city with a population exceeding a half a million people. The city’s remarkable cultural, technological, and economic resources nourish the University’s mission and enrich its life, just as the University, in turn, enriches the city.

In its vibrant urban environment, The University of Tulsa offers a diversity of learning experiences, a balance between career preparation and liberal education, teaching, and research, and endeavors to instill in its students an understanding that stature as an individual and value as a member of society depend upon continual learning.

Flexible Programs, Individual Attention

Nowhere is our commitment to personal attention more evident. With a low student-to-faculty ratio, TU offers personalized attention and close interaction with faculty. Many junior- and senior-level classes have as few as 10 students. You’ll most likely know the names of everyone in your classes. Even better, so will your professors.

By keeping a low student-to-faculty ratio, we’ve carefully fostered an environment that allows our faculty to be directly involved in our students’ academic development.

Our graduate and professional programs are among the top in the nation, with faculty and resources that bring out the best in our students. TU also encourages lifelong learning through its continuing education classes, programs, and other services.

Personal attention to your needs and goals is the primary advantage to attending a small, private university as committed to personal growth as TU.

TU students enhance their learning and development through programs and services they help create outside of the classroom. As a result they leave TU prepared for a life of learning, leadership and service in an increasingly diverse global society.

STUDENT LIFE

OpporTUnities to Serve

Opportunities to serve begin when freshmen students at TU engage in a community service project as part of their new student orientation program.

During this project, most of the freshmen class and many faculty and staff mentors spend half a day engaged in a service project in the nearby Kendall Whittier neighborhood.

A main focus in the Kendall Whittier neighborhood is providing service to the students of Kendall Whittier Elementary School. The majority of the students are from economically deprived homes and many are Hispanic speaking. The needs of these children are many.

TU freshmen usually arrive at the school and work in teams of 10-15 to provide a wide array of services including: assisting teachers in the classrooms re-shelving library books, cleaning out storage rooms, weeding and mulching flower beds, cleaning in the learning garden, sorting clothes, assembling computer tables, painting murals on walls, and assembling food backpacks. The day is always a great success! As a result of interaction with the elementary students, dozens of TU students sign up with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Oklahoma to be “Bigs” for the students of Kendall Whittier School.

In addition to this annual “kick-off” event with TU’s freshmen, TU’s student governing body, Student Association, has an annual all-campus community service event. During this event, hundreds of students gather for breakfast early on a Saturday morning, before going to dozens of sites around the city. Students are placed in teams of 7-10, based on their interest in working with children, animals, the elderly, the environment, construction, the homeless, etc.

After breakfast the teams load onto buses and are transported to such sites in the Tulsa area as the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma, Ronald McDonald House, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Up With Trees, Tulsa Humane Society, Goodwill Industries, Day Center for the Homeless, Grace Hospice, Neighbor for Neighbor. The teams work approximately 4-5 hours and then return to campus for some reflection on the events of the day and more food and entertainment.

All of this occurs because the concepts of community and service are woven heavily into The University of Tulsa’s mission statement. Consequently the university offers several service programs and initiatives including internships, organization/club service activities, community-based work-study jobs and other service opportunities through the Center for University and Community Engagement and the Office of Student Affairs.

We’re Here to Serve

Like most college campuses, the phrase “Student Life” at TU refers to the wide array of programs, services, organizations, and activities available outside of the classrooms and laboratories that are designed to complement the academic component of your TU experience. The main goal of the staff members who work with students outside of the classroom is to assure the most positive student life experience possible. In fact we often say that’s the only reason we’re here – because we mean it! These staff members are a part of the area of the University officially known as the division of Enrollment and Student Services.

Welcome to Your World

Student Life really is the students’ world in a number of ways. First, it’s where students spend most of their time. Second, while a wide range of resources and support services are available to students as described throughout this section of the University’s web site, students play a significant role in shaping TU’s Student Life experiences.

This comes from our philosophy that people support what they help create. Third, the students’ world at TU is exciting because of its diversity and the opportunity for students to learn from others from many different ethnic and racial backgrounds as well as from many countries.

What’s Available?

From TU’s student government known as the Student Association (SA) to the Residence Hall Association (RHA), students are actively involved in creating the out of class environment at TU. In addition, there are dozens upon dozens of clubs and organizations designed to address students’ interests and enhance their understanding of, and appreciation for, the diversity of the student body. And getting involved in them is easy.

Staying active and physically fit is also easy to do through a wide variety of intramural sports teams, club sports, and by taking advantage of TU’s state of the art Fitness Center.

Making the Student Life Experience Count

TU doesn’t just say that it values the Student Life experience. It backs that up with its Co-curricular Transcript (CCT.)

Like one’s academic transcript, the CCT is an official document of the University modeled after the academic transcript. The CCT enables students to document their involvement in the out – of – class opportunities of their Student Life experience. It also enables them to describe the skills they acquired and how their personal development was affected as a result of those experiences.

The CCT not only benefits students while at TU when it is used to support their applications for leadership positions on campus but also as a supplement to their academic transcript and resume when they make plans to leave TU for the first stop in their career or in support of their application for graduate or professional school.
