President's Message

President Dr. Tim Faltyn

Welcome to the Panhandle family!

Being the President at Oklahoma Panhandle State University is one of the greatest honors of my life. It is an honor to work with people who come to work every day always thinking of ways to help, support and create ways to make our students better. It’s an honor to be a part of building brighter futures for our students, their families and our region. It’s an honor to be part of an over 100 year legacy of excellence. For us excellence is more than just a slogan, it is a way of life for our students, our faculty, our staff and our community. That’s what We are Panhandle! means.

Keeping with the spirit of our mission, “Progress Through Knowledge” we strive to be a university that is always progressing forward. Our commitment to truth, hard work, respect, and humility makes us family. I believe what makes us so great is that we surround our students with faculty and staff who care just as much about the students success as they do. With alumni in all 50 states and 26 countries, we can honestly say, from here you can go anywhere. With a future so bright, all you have to do is decide on a direction, make the commitment to work hard and we will get you there. Now that you are part of our family, people here will always be on your side and our campus will always be home, no matter where you go or what you do.

I speak for all of us when I say that we are excited to come alongside you as your teachers, guides, and lifelong partners in this new chapter in your life.

We are Panhandle!

Dr. Tim Faltyn, President
