OSU Press Release

"The action by the legislature today to create a pathway to fulfill a longstanding promise made by the State to match donations from hundreds of donors who contributed to endowed chairs at universities and colleges across Oklahoma is commendable. It is fitting the bill passed on Boone Pickens’ birthday. He was one of the most generous people ever to higher ed and a donor to the endowed chair program. We thank the legislative leadership and the bipartisan support of legislators on taking this critical step forward. We are encouraged, and hopeful funds will be available next year to honor the promise made to Boone and so many other donors." OSU President Burns Hargis
