Interior Design Program at OC Granted Accreditation

As reported in the Talon, on July 28, 2010, the Council for Interior Design Accreditation granted a six-year accreditation to the interior design program at Oklahoma Christian University. The Council accredits more than 150 programs across the country. This makes Oklahoma Christian only the third school in the Council of Christian Colleges and Universities to have an accredited interior design program as well as one of a just a few accredited programs in Oklahoma.

“Receiving accreditation really benefits our students,” said interior design professor Amy Beauchamp. “Accredited programs are held to the highest standards of quality in the profession. This translates to better prepared graduates, especially in regard to applying for and taking the national certification exam.”

O’Keefe wins Merrick Award

The Merrick Foundation of Ardmore, Oklahoma, supports a special faculty award on selected campuses to show appreciation to teachers for excellence in their work and to encourage teaching the principles of a free economy.  Since Oklahoma Christian University of Science and Arts is strongly committed to teaching these principles, it has been selected as one university to receive the Merrick Award.  The winner of this year’s Merrick Award is Michael O’Keefe.  Mr. O’Keefe’s presentation was based upon his Integrated Marketing Design class (ARTS 4253).  The class assignment was:  “The American public has had a negative savings rate since 2005.  With the severe recession, unemployment has doubled, and many people have no savings to help them during this period.  Your job is to encourage Americans to save, direct them to resources on how to save, and teach them some fundamental ways to save.  These objectives were accomplished through highly visible traffic-building vehicles that successfully executed the concept visually.  The students did an excellent job in portraying reasons for saving money.”
