RisforThursday Network of Oklahoma

R is for Thursday (R4T) is a statewide collaboration of higher education professionals, community members and organizations, and foster alumni college students/graduates working toward increased understanding and support of former foster youth attending Oklahoma colleges or universities. R is for Thursday is led through a unique collaboration between Oklahoma State University and the University of Central Oklahoma.

A foster alumni college student is defined as any person who was in foster care in any state at age 13 or after and is currently enrolled at, or has graduated from, an Oklahoma college or university.

R is for Thursday focuses on three specific areas: research and statewide coordination of information, direct service to students (occurs through RisforThursday advocates at the campus levels), and interrogation of public policy impacting foster alumni college students.
