Rose State is committed to improving our campus learning environment through renovation of our existing facilities with the campus CAP (Campus Advancement Plan) Campaign.

Did you know?

  • More than 240,000 people of all ages have enrolled at Rose State since 1970.
  • Community members make 40,000 visits annually to the Aquatic Center.
  • Tinker Air Force Base and district citizens have
    free access to library resources.
  • Half of all Rose State students are adults
    from the community returning to school
    to improve their lives. 

Rose State graduate Keli Nees discusses how Rose State College provided her with the chance to better her life.

New investments totaling $22 million are needed in:

  • Learning spaces. Classroom buildings, the Learning Resources Center/Library, and support facilities must be modernized to meet ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) regulations. Comfort space for individual and group study is a major priority. Outdated heating, air conditioning, and electrical systems will be replaced.
  • Student support services. Space for tutoring and testing is inadequate. In addition, students, the community, local swim teams, and Tinker AFB personnel make great use of the swimming pool- a key recreational facility in dire need of major repair to remain operational and available.
  • Technology infrastructure for the 21st century. Critical enhancements will provide fast wireless Internet to support student learning with a new fiber- optic backbone and increase server capacity.

Rose State Is An Engine For Economic Growth

  • Rose State injects over $35 million in economic impact through financial aid rewards.
  • Students with an associate degree earn $346,000 more over a lifetime than those with a high school degree.
  • Rose State programs train adults for jobs in demand in Oklahoma, such as health care and aerospace.
