  • January - Get to know your fellow staff members in a fun, new way! During the month of January, SAC will kick off a Secret Staff Member program and all staff members are invited to participate. Participating members will be assigned a staff member to send good thoughts, small gifts, or other kind gestures once a week. If the event goes well, we will have another in the summer and fall. We will be sending out a questionnaire that will help your secret staff member better know your likes and dislikes, in order to send you things that match your interest. Contact Olivia Woody with any questions.
  • SAC members are encouraged to recommend guest speakers to attend our monthly SAC meetings. Guest speakers should be members of the Tulsa community that can share events and programs that could be beneficial for OSU-Tulsa to participate in.
  •  SAC members are encouraged to share ideas for events that the SAC could attend together as a group. For example, AHHA Tulsa, Glass Blowing, etc. Please email with any suggestions you may have.

  • Academic Affairs - The high school conferences for Jenks and Union were a success. Between both schools, there was a combined number of 2,000 students in attendance.
