How Does O.S.U. Compare to T.T.U.?

A credible University source tells NewsChannel 11 head hunters for Oklahoma State University have approached Dr. Schmidly for the Chief-Executive-Officier position at OSU. The source also says OSU very interested in Schmidly.

OSU started its president search this summer when the current President, James Halligan, announced he would retire. Halligan has said he will remain President until the University finds his replacement. Dr. Schmidly is in Oklahoma and unavailable for comment at this time.

So what does OSU have that may be appealing for Dr. Schmidly?

If President Dr. David Schmidly moves from Texas Tech University to Oklahoma State University, Schmidly would be the CEO of the OSU system, position equivalent to Texas Tech's Chancellor. At Tech, Schmidly is second in command.

So, what is OSU like? Here's a look at what OSU's President oversees.

According to their public information office, OSU is growing gradually. More than 22,000 students have enrolled. Twenty thousand students have enrolled at Texas Tech and expects that number to increase by 2,000 next year.

OSU's President specifically manages four vice-presidents and eight deans of various colleges. OSU has campuses in Stillwater, Okmulgee, Oklahoma City, and Tulsa. And a Health Sciences center in Tulsa.

Texas Tech has one main campus, but does offer education opportunities in Abilene, Amarillo, Junction, and Marble Falls. However, OSU's budget is $500 million, whereas Tech's budget is $432 million.

If Schmidly does step down, the chancellor and an advisory committee will find someone to fill his position. Schmidly has been Tech's President since August 2000. No word yet when OSU plans to hire a new president.
