University as a Family

“The American system of public higher education is a reflection of our country’s deep commitment to equal opportunity. Public universities are as American as the frontier – just as the frontier was profoundly important in the nation’s history for guaranteeing real opportunity for ordinary Americans, so, too, access to higher education today is the greatest guarantee of true social and economic opportunity for all. The affordability of higher education thus is part of our unique American social compact, and the University of Oklahoma embodies these strong, deeply American values.”
– OU President David L. Boren
