OSU serves African Americans

Oklahoma State University is a nationally recognized leader with an unwavering commitment to achieving inclusive excellence across its university system.
African American student organizations unify and promote the cultural heritage of African Americans. These groups promote the interaction between the academic, social, and political worlds of the black students attending OSU. We desire to create a more functional relationship with the general community on the Oklahoma State University campus.

African American Student Organizations

OSU provides African American students with resources to enrich their campus experience through such organizations as the African American Student Association (Afro-Am), National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) and Minority Women’s Association, giving students the opportunity to lead, provide community service and promote cultural unity. 
OSU is proud to cultivate an environment where the student body is able to celebrate and promote Black History Month. In 2020, the Mr. and Miss Black OSU scholarship pageant celebrated its 50th anniversary. The pageant continues to symbolize the importance of education and diversity on Oklahoma State’s campus.
