Inauguration Celebration for President Kayse Shrum
Since taking office in July 2021, Dr. Shrum has forged a new chapter for OSU — boldly facing challenges like conference realignment while also positioning our university for future success by embarking on a strategic planning process and launching key initiatives and partnerships.
Join the Cowboy family as we celebrate the future of OSU and commemorate the historic first year of Dr. Shrum’s transformative presidency. Mark your calendars — everyone is encouraged to attend. The celebration will also be livestreamed for alumni around the globe on Inside OSU. Additional details will be provided later this summer.
