NORMAN, Okla.—A new report names the University of Oklahoma as “one of the country’s strongest public research universities.”

The report cited the university’s history and leadership by President Boren for the program’s continued success in recent years.

OU was awarded re-accreditation without any additional monitoring.

“The University is extremely proud to have received such a complimentary and supportive report from our accrediting institution,” said OU President David L. Boren. “It is confirmation of the high standards of excellence which are being met at OU.”

The report was released by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

In addition to the praise from the report, the university has also received a “very high research standing” from the Carnegie Foundation.

This marks the first time a public institution in Oklahoma has received that type of classification from the foundation.
