OSU-Tulsa dedicated its new Donor Wall on Wednesday in recognition of benefactors who contribute to university efforts to provide educational opportunities for area residents.

Located in the OSU-Tulsa Conference Center Lobby, 53 glass panels inscribed with the names of notable donors are placed on the wall. Scattered among the inscriptions of civic leaders, businesses and community foundations are touches of America’s Brightest Orange.

President Howard Barnett said the OSU-Tulsa Donor Wall was created to show appreciation to the donors whose financial contributions to the OSU Foundation support area students through scholarships and contribute to a strong economy in Tulsa and throughout the state.

Since 2005, donors have provided nearly $3 million to fund student scholarships for more than 2,300 OSU-Tulsa students. Read more.
