Goodwell, OK - Oklahoma Panhandle State University participates in partnerships with many public and private sector organizations. School president Dr. Dave Bryant is especially excited about the newest one with the United States Army.

The program is called ConAP (Concurrent Admissions Program) and is designed to link new soldiers to the time of enlistment. According to the information supplied by the army, “The goal is for soldiers to transition directly from the army to their ConAp college.” The program provides immediate benefits for current members of the military, for those recently discharged, for those preparing to enter the military, and for reservists.

With the partnership with ConAP, Oklahoma Panhandle State has become a part of Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC). With this involvement, OPSU is a member of a large scale cooperative effort that includes 15 national higher education associations, many other colleges and universities, the Department of Defense, the Military Services, the National Guard and the Coast Guard.

Participating schools like OPSU may award appropriate credit for military training and consider credit for occupational experience.

Dr. Bryant has been working with Staff Sergeant Grover Taylor of the Liberal, Kansas Army Recruiting office and Steven Brown, Education Services Specialist from the Kansas City Recruiting Battalion.

OPSU’s Charles Mark is the field recruiter, and Dr. Wayne Manning is the school’s on-campus contact. Those interested in ConAP can contact Dr. Manning at 580-349-2611.
