New Frontiers is a capital campaign to raise funds for a new, state-of-the-art teaching, research and Extension facility for OSU Agriculture.

A New Home for Our College

The historic $50 million gift from the Ferguson Family Foundation has and will continue to transform our college in a variety of ways. The funds created a $25 million endowment for the college’s operations and designated $25 million to the New Frontiers campaign.
The new home for the Ferguson College of Agriculture will strengthen OSU Agriculture’s research, teaching and Extension missions while addressing two key challenges: attracting and retaining scientific leaders and equipping collaborative teams with state-of-the-art laboratory and field facilities. It will redefine what is possible for our faculty, students and the industries and communities that depend on our research.
Your investment in the New Frontiers campaign will better prepare our students to grow into individuals who seek to make a positive difference in their communities and beyond. You can watch a short video to learn more about New Frontiers or view progress on the live construction camera .

About the Fergusons

Kayleen and Larry Ferguson are avid OSU benefactors who want to help feed the world by elevating OSU Agriculture and its programs. The couple are the namesakes of the Ferguson Family Dairy Center in recognition of their foundation’s lead gift for the facility, including Helms Hall. The gift revitalized the aging program and empowered OSU to enhance the research-based education offered at the facility while also attracting the brightest students. The Fergusons, who met as students in the mid-1970s, have received numerous alumni awards from Oklahoma State University and believe in giving back to their alma mater.
