Evening of Excellence

Evening of Excellence 2021

Hosted by the OU College of Medicine Alumni Association, the Evening of Excellence honors individuals and organizations making significant contributions to research and medicine in Oklahoma. Proceeds from the Evening of Excellence support medical research at the College of Medicine.

As the health and safety of our community is our top priority, we have made the unfortunate decision to cancel Evening of Excellence 2021. While we take a pause in our fundraising event, we know that our work cannot stop. The College of Medicine is leading efforts in the fight against COVID-19, through both patient care and research efforts.

While many of our researchers on campus have tuned their focus to the fight against COVID-19, we are still continuing our research efforts on the health problems that plague Oklahoma and contribute to the devastating effects of this pandemic. Dollars to support research are more important than ever, and not holding Evening of Excellence will affect our ability to offer grants in 2021. Please consider a gift in support of research at the College of Medicine.
