MISSION STATEMENT
The Center for Oklahoma Studies (COS) serves as a gathering place for Oklahoma State University scholars and others whose work focuses on the 46th state, promoting activities that identify, examine, and disseminate aspects of the state’s richly textured, multicultural past that not only impact the present but also influence its future. Created to inspire interdisciplinary work and encourage an exchange of ideas, COS brings together a diverse group of individuals who contribute to the ever-expanding pool of knowledge about our State.

COS will make research results available and useful to the larger community of Oklahomans, in keeping with OSU's land grant mission of research, instruction, and outreach. OSU faculty and others carrying out research on Oklahoma-based topics can apply for affiliation with the Center on the basis of their interests, and COS will provide an up-to-date list of relevant courses taught by affiliates and a list of related programs and events on- and off-campus. COS will itself sponsor public presentations and events based on the work of its affiliates both on campus and in communities throughout the State.

The OSU Center for Oklahoma Studies is a partnership between the OSU departments of English and History and the OSU Library's Oklahoma Oral History Research Program.
