LaRita Aragon Picked to Run OU's Advanced Programs

The University of Oklahoma program that allows U.S. military and civil service personnel to pursue degrees regardless of where they're stationed in the world has hired Retired Maj. Gen. Rita Aragon, the former commander of the Oklahoma Air National Guard, as director. According to The Journal Record story:
Advanced Programs was established in 1964 as part of the university's continuing education and public service commitment. OU's College of Continuing Education pioneered the intensive teaching format, which includes advanced class preparation, a one- or two-weekend class session and post-class work. In all aspects except time, Advanced Programs courses are identical to those taught on the Norman campus, officials said. Thousands of men and women throughout the world have completed their degrees through Advanced Programs and OU Outreach. The program serves personnel at 31 military bases in North America, Europe and Asia, offering 10 master's degree programs and one doctoral program in organizational leadership.
