The School of Agriculture, through its E. (Kika) de la Garza American Institute of Goat Research, has established research partnerships in Asia, Africa and Europe. The institute is recognized internationally as a leader in its mission to develop and transfer enhanced goat production technologies to populations at the state, national and international levels. The university also has developed other distinctive academic programs; and became the first higher educational institution in the state of Oklahoma to offer the Doctor of Physical Therapy.
