What makes us Panhandle proud

A welcoming & supportive community.

We surround our students with faculty and staff who care just as much about the student’s success as they do.

Our commitment to life-long learning.

Through empowerment, innovation, access, and student-centered support, Panhandle State shapes lifelong learners and improves student outcomes.

Accessibility to quality higher education.

OPSU is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, a regional accreditation agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

First Hispanic-serving institution in Oklahoma

We recognize our call to serve, celebrate, and support the advancement of the diverse students who identify as Latino/a, Chicano/a, Mexican-American, and Hispanic.
