About Us

To further full participation for individuals with disabilities in Oklahoma post-secondary education through collaboration, information dissemination, advocacy, professional and policy development, and research, Oklahoma Association on Higher Education and Disability continues our mission for disability service providers and the students they serve. *

OK-AHEAD is an affiliate chapter to the AHEAD organization.

Our constitution and bylaws are available on this website.


It's time to renew membership! A member in good standing is a person who expresses an interest in the general aims and mission of the association.

Thank you to all who participated in our annual OK-AHEAD conference. We had a good turnout, wonderful hospitality thanks to Southern Nazarene University, and very informative sessions. Thank you to our speakers and OK-AHEAD board as well.


The OK-AHEAD scholarship committee accepts scholarship applications from November to March each year. Scholarships can be applied at any Oklahoma technology center, or any two-year or four-year college or university. Three $500 scholarships are awarded annually.
