Kelly Charles,
Assistant Director of International Admissions
International Admissions


I came to OCU after earning a Masters degree in International Education Policy and Management from Vanderbilt University. Before that I studied elementary education at Oklahoma Baptist University, where I made many friends from around the world. I enjoyed learning about other cultures and sharing my own culture while in college, and I still enjoy it now!

I especially love to share about Oklahoma and the Oklahoma City area. I grew up in Oklahoma, and I am proud to be an Okie! I love how friendly people are in this area and all the things OKC has to offer.

Though Oklahoma is my favorite place, six trips to Malawi, Africa have made Sub-Saharan Africa a special place for me too. I love meeting people from the region and would really like to travel all across Africa.

Wherever you’re from I will be happy to help you as you apply and study at OCU. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. I look forward to seeing you at OCU soon!
