OCU earns recognition
The U.S. Department of Education recently named Oklahoma City University to its 2014 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.
All OCU undergraduates must take at least one service-learning course in order to graduate. The program’s value already tops $2 million worth of community volunteer hours.
