Task Force on the Future of Higher Education

The Task Force on the Future of Higher Education was established by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education in April 2017 to consider ways to improve degree completion and increase productivity by focusing on modernization, efficiencies and innovation.

  The task force is charged to examine every aspect of system operations, including academic models, such as program and faculty sharing and targeted degree completion initiatives; online education models; structure; fiscal services and operational efficiencies; workforce development; and information technology to ensure they are properly aligned and defined to best serve the students and state.

The task force will conduct a systematic and thorough review of the current status of higher education in Oklahoma; examine existing initiatives and best practices; and report to the State Regents findings and recommendations on strategies that best support improving quality, access, affordability and efficiency in the Oklahoma State System of Higher Education.

Members are comprised of the State Regents, private citizens, college and university representatives, and the designees of Gov. Mary Fallin, Speaker of the House Charles McCall and Senate President Pro Tempore Mike Schulz. Citizen members are well-respected Oklahomans who come from a variety of professional and educational backgrounds and represent different geographic regions within the state. Members conduct their work through subcommittees that focus on four key priority areas.
