OSU Board of Regents Approve Naming Ferguson College of Agriculture

Fri, 24 Jan 2020 16:08:48 CST

OSU Board of Regents Approve Naming Ferguson College of Agriculture Today the Regents at Oklahoma State University approved the name Ferguson College Of Ag for the formerly the College of Ag and Natural Resources (CASNR)

Dr. Tom Coon said, "We are pleased to share a special edition of Triangle highlighting a historic time for our college and two state agencies. Today, the Oklahoma A&M Board of Regents approved the renaming of OSUís college of agriculture to recognize the Ferguson Family Foundation.

Perhaps most meaningful for me over the past few days since the gift announcement has been witnessing the reactions of students and alumni to such a significant contribution, one that will transform our efforts and the university for generations. We truly are heading toward New Frontiers which is the appropriately-named campaign to raise funds for a new building for the Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources. The Ferguson announcement served as the public launch of the campaign to raise $50 million toward construction.

Half of the Fergusonís gift goes toward those costs. With other pledges and gifts, we are now more than 60 percent toward our goal. This investment is truly a vote of confidence in the ability of our faculty, staff and students to change the world through teaching, research and extension."
