The USAO nonprofit Foundation is proud to support the academic mission of the historic University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma.


In 2005, USAO (Oklahoma's only public liberal arts college in Chickasha, Oklahoma) was  ranked the top public baccalaureate undergraduate college in the Western United States by U.S. News and World Report for the fifth year in a row.


According to U.S. News, a college's academic reputation is critical.  Also considered is selectivity in accepting freshmen, faculty resources, curriculum rigor, graduation retention rates, alumni giving, graduation rates, and financial resources such as student scholarships and endowment programs.


The USAO college Foundation supports the university through matching endowments, student scholarships, gift programs, estate planned gifts, and funding of campus capital projects.
