CIS Board of Visitors member Steve Dolman passed away on February 16, 2024. CIS Interim Dean Jonathan Stalling has shared the below message reflecting on Dolman's legacy at the College of International Studies.

Many CIS students, faculty and staff who call Farzaneh Hall their campus home enter the building each day through the double doors that open from the Marjorie Buchner Dolman Courtyard, and many of us take a moment every week to talk with colleagues, students or friends at one of several tables near the water fountain. Yet this space became all the more meaningful to us last week with the passing of Steve Dolman, a long-term advocate of OU Study Abroad and a longtime member of the CIS Board. His gift made in honor of his mother Marjorie has left a lasting legacy for our college by providing us with a lovely commons on our college grounds to meet and discuss global affairs, plan our next study abroad adventure, catch up on the news of the day, or simply sit alone to study for the next exam. A world traveler, international businessman, and Sooner through and through, I know seeing this shared space getting used daily is something that Steve would be proud of.
