The OU Center for Community Engagement is a center housed at the OU-Tulsa Schusterman Center.
The OU Community Engagement Center grew out of the OU CORE office. OU CORE was established in 2005 as a Community Outreach Partnership Center through a HUD grant. OU CORE was one of 11 three-year grants chosen from over 200 university submissions.
In September 2008, OU-Tulsa submitted a proposal to the Netter Center for Community Partnerships to transform the OU CORE to the OU Center for Community Engagement. Realizing the potential for expansion and successful collaboration, the Netter Center awarded the proposal to OU-Tulsa. OU CEC now serves as the regional training center for a five state area including Oklahoma, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas and Arizona for the Netter Center for Community Partnerships.
The archives of OUCORE are available here and are an important part of the history of OUCEC.
