Welcome to The Nontraditional Learner – the new and improved College of Liberal Studies blog!
The OU Web Comm office partnered with EduBlogs to bring a consistent blog look and well-supported platform to departments across the OU campus. Other than Web Comm’s blog, CLS is the first entity at OU to try it out!

My blog updates have been a bit sparse lately, mainly because I traveled to Chicago, Las Vegas and San Diego within a 10-day time frame.
One of the great things about taking OU’s CLS programs on the road is that I am fortunate to represent OU in some amazing cities and venues. We started the morning of Oct. 23 at the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) annual conference in Chicago (yes, that was the week after our loss to Texas Tech which we never heard the end of), and flew directly from there to Vegas. As I have mentioned in the past, OU CLS/Outreach has partnered with the Las Vegas Metro PD to bring educational programs to police, corrections and civilians to Vegas via our presence on Nellis AFB. We hit each area-command at a pre-shift briefing to make a small presentation about our online or Nellis-based programs, and then we evaluated their collegiate transcripts for admission to OU on the spot!
After a weekend at home, I then traveled with our Associate Dean Dr. Martha Banz to our San Diego office in search of a new OU-San Diego representative. The results of that search are coming soon, stay tuned…
