President's Message

President David Bryant

I am proud to lead OPSU as it begins its second century! It is a time of reflection as well as a time to anticipate the future. After 100 years of providing academic excellence on the High Plains, OPSU remains the best value for students seeking a degree and acquiring learning skills that last a lifetime.

OPSU students benefit from the friendly campus environment with highly-qualified faculty and staff who genuinely care about those they serve. Small class sizes provide everyone the opportunity to develop close relationships with instructors and their peers. Learning opportunities abound outside the classroom, too. OPSU Aggies who become involved in campus activities and organizations have the opportunity to assume leadership roles that will equip them for success following graduation.

In the next 100 years, OPSU will undoubtedly undergo many changes and face new challenges. Because it is built on a foundation as solid and independent as the population that settled the region, we promise to continue providing an affordable, high-quality, student-centered educational and cultural resource for students, their families, and area citizens. We look forward to extending our tradition as the university of choice for the High Plains.

David A. Bryant
