Wouldn't it be wonderful if enrichment funds were available to turn "would have been great" opportunities into "it changed my life" realities?

One of the best ways to assist in a student’s artistic journey is to provide them with the support necessary to experience unique and often unplanned educational opportunities.

The Weitzenhoffer Family College of Fine Arts Dean's Circle is an annual giving society comprised of the college’s closest friends. The Dean’s Circle provides much-needed enrichment funding for students and faculty.


For an annual contribution of $2,000, Dean’s Circle members receive special perks including recognition in all University Theatre performance programs, exclusive members-only events, The Fine Points newsletter, and two season tickets to nine University Theatre productions of drama, musical theatre, opera and dance (online streaming may be available for some productions).

Current members of the OU President’s Associates may join the Dean’s Circle at the discounted rate of $1,000 gift.


Friends of the Arts age 40 and under can join the Dean’s Circle as a “Young Patron” for a $250 annual gift. Young Patrons receive all the benefits of the Dean's Circle membership.

Become a member of our Fine Arts Dean’s Circle today!
