Students are at the heart of everything Cameron University does. Our faculty and staff are committed to providing access to high-quality educational opportunities at an exceptional value. Our focus on student success extends far beyond enrollment, as we all work to help each student to reach his or her goal of earning a college degree or credential.
Cameron University is also committed to the educational, cultural and economic advancement of the communities we serve. We do that by assisting students as they build upon success and learning inside and outside the classroom. Our goals are to prepare every Cameron student for a successful career in his or her chosen field, and to motivate each one to become an engaged citizen and community leader of tomorrow.
As a member of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities and one of nearly 420 public colleges and universities in the U.S., Cameron shares a learning- and teaching-centered culture, a commitment to underserved populations and a dedication to sharing our expertise that promotes the economic progress and cultural development of Southwest Oklahoma. That is why CU is proud to be part of Opportunities for All, AASCU’s national campaign in which state colleges and universities speak in one voice to raise awareness of the value of higher education to students, their families and their respective states.
Five themes describe Cameron University’s educational mission: Accessibility, Affordability, Accountability, Attainment and Engagement – principles that are very similar to those of Opportunities for All. In short, students want to be assured that their college choice is worth the investment; families want to know that their students will be productive and successful in life because of that college experience; faculty and staff want to know they are making a difference in students’ lives; and communities want a skilled workforce to support their business needs, as well as help advance their community and cultural development.
We encourage you to learn more about Opportunities for All, and support our effort!
