Giving to CEPS

As a college we are committed to providing our students with the highest quality educational experience in the State of Oklahoma. However, we know this cannot be accomplished without much needed private support for faculty/staff development, program development, and student scholarship support.

Giving to the College of Education & Professional Studies is easy.
