Oklahoma City University has been chosen as a national finalist in the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education/U.S. Steel Alumni Competition for the sixth consecutive year.

The school has been named a finalist in the sustained performance category, which recognizes universities and their alumni who have made significant and successful commitment to encourage the financial support of education.

More than 2,000 universities and colleges in the United States and Canada compete in this alumni incentive awards program. Finalists are those universities which have shown no year-to-year decline in the number of alumni donors to the annual fund or no year-to-year decline in alumni dollars given to the annual fund over a four year period.

Each year over the past five years, OCU has raised more than $5 million in budget support, capital improvements and endowment funds, with a significant portion coming from OCU alumni, the United Methodist Church and the Oklahoma business community. The alumni support program for 1985 through 1989 is included in OCU's $60 million "Let's Get the Job Done" campaign.
