- “Private fundraising efforts continue to be an important part of higher education in Oklahoma. As state dollars to SWOSU decrease it becomes more important for the future of our institution that we receive support from our friends and graduates. Scholarship funds provided by private donations continue to play a significant role in helping our students in obtaining their college degree.”
SWOSU President, Randy Beutler
“Southwestern Oklahoma State University Foundation is extremely vital to the continued success of both the University and the students, and the ongoing support of the Foundation by the graduates, friends, and students of the University provides essential funding for critical needs.”
Foundation Board of Trustees Chairman, Jim Mogg
"President Beutler has created a bold vision for the future of Southwestern Oklahoma State University and has challenged the SWOSU Foundation to build on what has been accomplished in the past to help bring that vision to life. By overcoming the obstacles of limited resources, we are transitioning into one of Oklahoma’s premier leadership institutions – the possibilities are exhilarating!"
Executive Director for Institutional Advancement, Foundation & Alumni, Lynne Thurman
