10/28/08 - Tribe renews university agreement


Recently, Ottawa University President Kevin C. Eichner and Ottawa Chief John Robert Ballard honored their long-standing relationship with a historic signing that renewed and extended an agreement initiated between the two parties in the 1800's. Under the new agreement, official Ottawa Tribe of Oklahoma members will be provided a free education at any of OU's five sites or online. That education includes tuition as well as room and board at any of the university's residential campus.
