MESSAGES FROM THE DEANS
It is professors committed to learning who have given OU Extended Campus whatever character it may possess.
For them, knowledge is a seamless fabric, and a life of learning carries the mind on an unbroken excursion through a universe of ideas. (Burkett and Ruggiers, 1960)
DEAN MARTHA BANZ
OU Extended Campus is on the forefront of adult higher education, specializing in meeting the unique needs of adult learners and innovatively serving this population of students.
Regardless of the particular delivery format a student chooses to pursue with us, whether that be online, face-to-face, or some combination, we have three goals for an OU education; equip/engage/enhance.
First, we seek to equip individuals with the tools necessary for understanding and solving the complex problems, both personal and corporate, inherent in contemporary life. Second, we seek to engage students in learning that integrates isolated bodies of factual information, facilitating a sense of unity that promotes wisdom in decision-making and problem-solving. As we accomplish the first two goals, we’re confident that the third will emerge – the goal of educating citizens who actively enhance the functioning of a free society.
If these goals sound enticing, join us in the journey!
