Commitment to Community.
The culture of service and community connections extends to faculty and staff across the university. Across academic disciplines and university departments, True Blue Neighbors connects the TU community to volunteer opportunities and collaborate in creating opportunities for integrated learning.
With appreciation for our roots in the Kendall-Whittier neighborhood, we are committed to facilitating initiatives that benefit those who live, work, and attend school around us. Our True Blue Neighbors Fellowship provides funding for faculty-developed experiential-learning opportunities to address complex social challenges and meet the needs of our neighbors.
Several volunteer events have become annual traditions with employees serving as a group with their colleagues. To be notified of annual service activities including Freshman Move-in Day, Tulsa Area United Way activities, Holiday Bags for Kendall-Whittier Elementary, Employee Appreciation Service Day, and other opportunities sign up for our emails. The University’s generous benefit policy allows employees, with the approval of their supervisor, paid time off to volunteer in the greater Tulsa area.
