What is OSLEP?
The Oklahoma Scholar-Leadership Enrichment Program - OSLEP - is an intercollegiate academic program sponsored by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education open to students at all the public and private universities in Oklahoma.
The scholar-leadership program provides room and board, as well as books, at no additional charge to the students.
How Do OSLEP Classes Work?
Students have a minimum of 45 contact hours with the visiting scholar and the faculty resource person (FRP) assigned to each class. Students are required to complete the assigned readings before the class begins and the faculty resource person will provide pre-seminar assignments to help students.
"OSLEP gives you the opportunity to really go in depth in a topic and work with some of the best in the field. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience working with a small group of students to explore a topic."
"I would definitely recommend this seminar to my contemporaries as a great way to get out of our respective academic comfort zones!"
"I had a great experience making new friends and learning so much great information. The OSLEP seminar is definitely a must!"
"These seminars provide a much deeper exploration of the topic than we might get in a regular class. It was also much more immersive than I've been exposed to thus far."
"It's an entirely different format from a regular class, and the very interaction-based content adds a completely different value to the course."
"I have already recommended OSLEP to my peers. It is a wonderful program with an amazing design that both allows students to get credit hours quickly and provide more specific topics for seminars."
"I would mention that I felt empowered in my research skills and honored to be surrounded by other intelligent ambitious students from a variety of majors and universities."
"The OSLEP seminar experience was inspirational and eye-opening. In delving into the field of economics and attending the seminar, I was exposed to a constructive, invigorating academic experience that has changed the course of my future education."
"The style of the seminar allowed for an intense and informative dive into the subject matter. The informal aspects of the course- talking during breaks and sharing meals together- only served to better the course."
"An immersive experience with unique opportunities to meet and discuss with other students from around the state."
"The OSLEP course gave me the oportunity to engage with material I have a great interest in but is not available in my major."
