Academic Affairs

The division of Academic Affairs encompasses all schools and colleges of Oklahoma City University and several academic support offices including Registrar, International Education, Institutional Research, Assessment, and the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning.

Academic Affairs is led by by Dr. Susan C. Barber, provost and professor of biology, and by Dr. Kent Buchanan, assistant provost and professor of biology. The Academic Affairs staff is available to assist students, parents, alumni, faculty, staff, and other constituents in all matters associated with academics.

At Oklahoma City University, all of our undergraduate students receive an education that is enriched by our liberal arts curriculum. All students are taught by members of our exceptional faculty—not graduate assistants—in small classes designed to ignite and expand each student’s love of learning.



As chief academic officer, Dr. Barber champions academic excellence across campus to maintain and enhance the value of an Oklahoma City University education. Academic programs at Oklahoma City University continue to make great strides under her leadership.

For more information on the life-changing experience of a liberal arts education, we encourage you to explore this website, call or email the Office of Academic Affairs, or the Office of Admissions.
