Leadership
Empowering Outstanding Leaders.

The Hargis Leadership Institute trains passionate individuals who desire to consistently exhibit exceptional ethical leadership. We value cultivating leaders based on three fundamental pillars - identity, relationships, and leadership skills. As an Institute, we partner with other university departments, private industry, and community groups to create leadership development opportunities.  

With your support, we can expand our efforts with Leadership Study Abroad courses to provide educational opportunities for students to study in Zimbabwe with OSU alumna and world-renowned humanitarian Dr. Tererai Trent. To provide one full scholarship for a student, the cost would be $5,000. We have 20 students who travel to Zimbabwe each year. The students are so passionate about the experience that they have started a 510(C)(3) to donate freshwater wells to rural schools that we are visiting while on the study abroad. Your Give Orange donation would support students excited to learn from Tererai’s leadership and create access to education through fresh water. 

Lead 4 Success is an internationally accredited, dynamic leadership development program for our renowned students. OSU is currently the only university that offers Lead 4 Success to students! OSU trains 150 students annually in this program but would like to see that number grow. A donation of $250 would fully support a student through the program.  

The Hargis Leadership Institute’s mission is to develop life-giving community leaders. The Institute is committed to developing leaders in every sector of society who strive for the highest common good. The Institute also aligns with Oklahoma State University's land-grant mission by investing in the leaders of today and tomorrow. Through their life-giving community leadership, this network of leaders will be equipped to create better communities for all.  

"The overarching vision of the Hargis Leadership Institute is to help every OSU student find the leader within them. This Institute will provide an opportunity for all of our students to explore and nourish their leadership potential."

Burns Hargis, OSU President Emeritus

Your gift to the Hargis Leadership Institute will ensure the future of tomorrow's leaders. By making a gift during Give Orange, students will be able to unlock their leadership potential and change the world.
