OSU opens nationwide search

With the upcoming retirement of President Burns Hargis, who has successfully led Oklahoma State University since 2007, the Oklahoma A&M Board of Regents invites nominations and applications for the appointment of President of Oklahoma State University and the OSU System.
The Board of Regents seeks a dynamic, creative and accomplished leader with vision, drive and integrity who can build upon the success of the university in continuing to enhance the state, region, and nation through comprehensive academic, research, and outreach initiatives.

From the Regents

“We will bring together many individuals from across our university community to form a search committee, which will play an essential role in assisting the regents in identifying and selecting the best-qualified person. As we begin this important endeavor, the regents welcome the advice, inputs and insights from people across the OSU community.” - Regent Rick Davis
