Our MissionOur WorkOur Team

Our mission is simple...

More students interning in Tulsa than any other city in the region.

The data shows internships are a critical factor for both companies and students when landing in full-time jobs after graduation. 

Tulsa is a city on the rise, experiencing a boom in innovation fields — especially tech. To meet the needs of this growth, we have to develop and diversify our talent. Internships are the first step in attracting skilled, ambitious, young professionals to work in Tulsa. 

The right internships

We help companies design and launch internship programs that focus on the student experience and drive success.

Equitable access for students 

We take an intentional approach to growing awareness among diverse community and student groups to ensure diversity in the application, selection, and internship hiring process. 

Critical support 

We offer both companies and students resources to ensure that intern needs are met — onboarding, housing, enrichment events. 

Our work is to:

Increase the number of paid internships in Tulsa that value student talent
Diversify our hiring pools to connect more students with the best internship opportunities
Support students in making meaningful connections and building community in Tulsa
Introduce students to all that Tulsa has to offer to early career professionals

Our goals are to:

Support our community partnerships and employer partners in creating more jobs in Tulsa.
Make Tulsa home for our college students and recent grads.
Create more diverse work environments in Tulsa.

Our Story

Campus Tulsa was founded in the fall of 2020 in response to the growing need for bachelor degree holders in Oklahoma. While there are over 67,000 college degree holders within a 50 mile radius of Tulsa, for the workforce to meet Tulsa’s growth trajectory, especially in skilled and niche areas, the city needs to take a systematic approach to attracting and retaining college graduates. Campus Tulsa exists to help college students fall in love with Tulsa & launch their careers at area businesses and nonprofits after they graduate.
