Bright Society

Oklahoma City University Bright Society

Oklahoma City University is committed to securing our local impact and global reach. Our mission began over a century ago, and we have proven success preparing the best and the brightest learners to create, lead, and serve. Now is the time to build on our legacy and storied success to shape and secure the future of Oklahoma City University—and propel our students to even greater heights. The intellectual breadth and intimate scale that this esteemed institution provides learners is dependent on private support. Your annual investment will enable OCU’s president to implement the most pressing university-wide priorities, all to the benefit of our students and our community.

Bright Society serves as a critical network of supporters who are deeply valued by university administration. In gratitude for your investment in the President's Excellence Fund and scholarships, Bright Society members will be invited to special events and recognized in university publications.


Bright Society is comprised of all alumni, friends, and corporate partners who actively contribute a minimum of $2,000* annually for three years to the OCU President's Excellence Fund. As one of the university's top priorities is scholarships, members may restrict half of their annual investment to scholarship support in a specific school or in athletics, if they wish.
