Oklahoma State University Receives $250,000 Gift for Aging Research


Record, Journal, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Oklahoma State University has received a $250,000 gift from Bryan Close of Tulsa to create an endowed professorship in adulthood and aging.

Once fully matched dollar-for-dollar by T. Boone Pickens' $100 million chair match commitment, as well as the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, the gift will provide $1 million of impact in endowed funds.

The president of CloseBend Inc., a welding fitting manufacturing company, Close received his hotel and restaurant administration degree from OSU in 1966.

His gift will provide funding to conduct applied, interdisciplinary research to address the relationship and well- being of an aging society.

To take full advantage of the state's dollar-for-dollar match, and make the most significant impact on OSU academics, Close made the gift prior to the July 1 change in the state's endowed chair matching program. This gift is part of the $66.8 million in endowed faculty gifts OSU announced recently.

The gift will create the Bryan Close Professorship in Adulthood and Aging located within the College of Human Environmental Sciences.
