Our Mission

The University of Oklahoma Outreach is a lifelong learning organization dedicated to helping individuals, businesses, groups, and communities transform themselves through knowledge.

In 1957, Dr. Thurman J. White secured one of 12 grants given by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation for creating university-based residential conference centers around the world. The grant, the largest the university had received to date, was used to build the Thurman J. White Forum and other structures that collectively formed the Oklahoma Center for Continuing Education (OCCE). The Association for Continuing Higher Education and the International Association of Continuing Education Hall of Fame are housed on the OCCE campus.
