Women for OSU is led by an advisory Council with an established giving history to the university and a passion for OSU.

Role of the Council

WOSU Council The Women for OSU Council is made up of approximately 40 women with a minimum lifetime family giving history of $50,000. The Council advises OSU Foundation staff on programs and activities focused on inspiring and engaging other women with Oklahoma State.

They are role models for philanthropic leadership and serve throughout the year on focused teams aimed at engaging alumni and friends of OSU. Each year, members agree to make a $1,000 annual commitment to Women for OSU while serving on the Council. The Council meets three to four times annually.

Honorary members include OSU’s first lady and may include other prominent OSU alumnae and women leaders.

Past Council members will also be informed of all events and activities, except for regular Council meetings.

New Women for OSU Emeritus Program

Our Emeritus Council are those who formerly served on the Women for OSU Council and remain deeply committed to the mission of the program. The Emeritus status is in recognition of past participation and contributions; however, these members have also agreed to stay connected with Women for OSU in an advisory capacity, given their continuing interest in Oklahoma State University. We welcome all former Women for OSU Council members to join our NEW Emeritus Program — an annual gift of $1,000 to any Women for OSU fund is requested. For more information, please reach out to Leslie Woolley.
