Official Charity: Real Estate Program at the University of Central Oklahoma

We have adopted the academic Real Estate Program at the University of Central Oklahoma as our primary charity. The program's director, Dr. David Chapman (also a REALTOR®) is our Academic Liaison. We are planning regular events with the University:
Town and Gown Networking and Fundraising Event :  Once during Spring and Fall semesters we sponsor a fund-raising / CE event networking event with continental breakfast where you can meet and interact with future real estate industry professionals. Networking will begin about 30 minutes before a class is scheduled to begin.  Donations will be requested to benefit the Real Estate program and its Scholarships. For those wishing to stay, that class session will also qualify as a CE class towards license renewal.
Professionals wishing to establish formal Internship/apprentice programs with UCO's Real Estate Program should contact
Dr. David Chapman (program coordinator) to understand the requirements of both the university and licensing agencies.  The Greater Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce's GreaterGrad website is a resource for nonacademic internships.
