OSU-Tulsa to Host “Operation Education” Fair for Area Teachers and Educators

OSU-Tulsa will host an education fair for Tulsa-area teachers and education professionals Wednesday, June 30.

“Operation Education” will take place in OSU-Tulsa’s Main Hall Commons from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Participants will learn about OSU graduate programs available in Tulsa, the federal Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) grant program and OSU-Tulsa’s new Graduate Education Scholarship.

 “As a result of the economic climate and budget cuts, teachers across the nation are facing unemployment,” said Lori Coggins, manager of the Graduate Student Services Center. “As they consider their options, we want to provide information on how earning a master’s or doctoral degree can update their job skills and advance their careers, as well as the resources available to financially make it possible.”

Graduation Photos and Video Available

Photos from OSU-Tulsa’s 2010 Graduation Ceremony are now available on the university’s official Flickr page. You can also watch the “Hopes and Dreams” student video that was shown during the ceremony on OSU-Tulsa’s YouTube channel. In the video, members of the Class of 2010 share their dreams and what being a graduate means to them.
