At every great university, a special group of friends can be counted on to set an example for others by providing leadership and commitment to the mission of the institution. At OCU, that group is the Nebula Society.
The term "nebula" describe the material from which stars are formed. What better description for this generous group of donors whose investment in OCU is essential to creating stars from this generation of OCU students.
Each donor to the Nebula Society is investing not only in the future of the university but also in the future of hundreds of students. OCU has a proud tradition of scholarship and service. Gifts to the Nebula Society enable us to continue this tradition by offering vital support to President Robert Henry in leading OCU to continued academic excellence.
The Nebula Society: Meeting critical needs at OCU
Donors to the Nebula Society generously provide unrestricted gifts of $1,000 or more to the OCU Fund, which support the greatest priorities of the university. These priorities include awarding scholarships to deserving students, enriching our faculty, enhancing academic programs and providing the kind of facilities OCU students need to perfect the talents and practice the skills of their chosen fields. The Nebula Society enables students to change their lives and, in the process, change the world.
The Nebula Society also provides the university with the flexible resources that are often needed to meet unexpected challenges or take advantage of exciting opportunities. The availability of these important funds can often provide the margin of excellence to make Oklahoma City University the premier institution that our students and alumni expect and our times demand.
The Nebula Society: A special circle of friends
Nebula Society donors are invited and encouraged to become active in the life of Oklahoma City University. Donors will receive VIP invitations to special campus events. They will have the opportunity to hear a number of nationally and internationally known speakers during each academic year. These distinguished speakers will represent a wide range of thought and experience and will personify OCU's commitment to the liberals arts tradition and the free exchange of ideas.
Oklahoma City University is well known for its rich array of cultural activities. Nebula Society donors will also be able invited to enjoy vocal and instrumental music concerts, musical theatre, and performances by the university's elite dance companies.
Nebula Society donors will be recognized in the spring issue of FOCUS magazine and will be invited to be our guest at the Starry Night Soiree, the annual party at which we honor our donors for their partnership, trust, and friendship.
