Land Acknowledgment
We acknowledge that the land granted to Oklahoma State University (OSU) was originally inhabited and cared for by First Americans. We also recognize and acknowledge that OSU resides and operates upon the territorial lands currently inhabited and preserved by citizens of the 39 sovereign Tribal Governments within Oklahoma. As a land-grant institution, OSU is committed to engaging in university and community efforts to represent and honor the proud cultural heritage and history of Native citizens throughout the state and nation, including our students, faculty, staff, and alumni.
