Council on Student Affairs (COSA)
The Council on Student Affairs serves as a key advisory council to the chancellor, OSRHE staff and other state officials regarding issues and policies affecting the welfare and development of students enrolled in the Oklahoma higher education system. The council also serves as a forum for student affairs officers to discuss matters of common interest, conducts studies and issues reports designed to strengthen co-curricular programs and student support services at Oklahoma higher education institutions. Membership is comprised of principal student affairs officers from each institutional campus and higher education center (as appropriate) in the state system. In addition, a representative from the independent sector is invited to serve on the council's executive committee, and student affairs officers from private institutions are invited to attend and participate in council meetings and activities.
