Schusterman Learning Center
University of Oklahoma - Tulsa
The University of Oklahoma has been involved in the Tulsa community since 1957. OU-Tulsa has grown to be a nationally recognized center of higher education, offering over 30 graduate and undergraduate programs in Allied Health, Architecture, Arts and Sciences, Education, Engineering, Fine Arts, Liberal Studies, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy and Public Health. In 1999, through a generous gift from the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, the University purchased the former BP Amoco Research Center, a 60-acre campus located in the middle of Tulsa, providing a home for all OU-Tulsa’s programs in a single location.
The Schusterman Learning Center was designed to support advanced instructional methods, including team learning, distance learning and extensive use of technology in the classroom setting. The two-story facility is home to the Perkins Family Lecture Hall, an auditorium that seats more than 360 students, as well as two smaller lecture halls each seating 90 students, one large classroom seating 70 students and eight additional classrooms seating an average of 32 students. The center also features study rooms and a great hall with a three-story rotunda, used for hosting large gatherings and providing study and social space for students.
