2 Territorial University at Norman The first Oklahoma territorial legislature passed legislation creating three institutions of higher education in 1890 in order to fulfill a requirement of the Organic Act of Congress establishing the territory. Congress required the Oklahoma territory to establish a liberal arts and professional education, agriculture and mechanical arts education and teacher training.

3 During the 1920s there were fifty- three different presidents presiding over eighteen public institutions, an average of one new president every three years. In the 1930s fifty more presidents rotated through the system. These changes not only affected personnel, but accreditation as well. In 1931, eleven Oklahoma colleges and universities were accredited by the north Central Association of Colleges and Schools, but in 1936 only 3 institutions were still accredited.

4 The first published study of the problem of coordination of higher education in Oklahoma was the doctoral dissertation of Dr. Henry G. Bennett in 1926. He recommended that a central coordinating board be established and a state system formed. Dr. Henry G. Bennett President, Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical College, 1928-1951

21 1. Focus On College Readiness Higher education and K-12 are working together to develop and implement strategies that focus on better preparing students in high school for success in college. Enhancements in academic activities in the 11 th and 12 th grades will be made to reduce the need for remediation. 2. Transform Remediation Oklahoma public higher education institutions are implementing programs in the areas of math, language skills and reading that will dramatically improve developmental programs and reduce the time it takes to earn a degree. 3. Strengthen Pathways to College Degrees and Certificates Our colleges and universities are implementing programs that create clear pathways to degrees and certificates including the cooperative alliance with Career Technology Centers and new CCA- pioneered techniques to provide electronic degree checklists, advising, and academic support. 4. Increase Adult Degree Completion The Reach Higher program provides degree completion opportunities to students who have some college credit but have not completed their associate or bachelors degree. The program is being expanded to include college certificates. 5. Reward Performance In April 2012, the State Regents adopted a performance based funding formula providing incentives to institutions that increase their degree completion rates in addition to other performance factors.
