Oklahoma State University–Okmulgee
Oklahoma State University Institute of Technology (OSUIT) is a public institute of technology in Okmulgee, Oklahoma. It is part of the Oklahoma State University System. OSUIT has thirty-seven programs of study which include thirty-one programs of study towards an Associate in Applied Science degree, four programs towards an Associate in Science transfer degree, and three programs towards Bachelor of Technology degrees.
The school, historically known by the informal name Okmulgee Tech, has changed its official name several times, most recently in 2008 when it was changed to OSU Institute of Technology, to distinguish it from the rest of the OSU system as a school for applied technology.
Before Oklahoma statehood, the site of the school had served as a Creek Nation orphanage from 1892 to 1906. In 1943 the United States Army acquired the site to serve under the jurisdiction of Camp Gruber as Glennan General Hospital, initially intended for U.S. troops but subsequently designated as a facility for treating prisoners of war (mainly Germans) captured in North Africa and elsewhere. After World War II ended, Oklahoma A&M acquired the camp and converted it into a branch campus, whose initial emphasis was vocational training for veterans, both male and female. The school has seen several name changes and received its current name in 2008.
