NORMAN — The University of Oklahoma is the first public university in the nation to be awarded the Davis Cup in recognition of its record-setting enrollment of United World College international freshmen.

OU’s 45 Davis United World College Scholars also represent the largest class ever enrolled at a Davis UWC Scholars Program partner institution.

OU is one of 91 Davis Program partner colleges and universities in the United States, including Yale, Princeton, Brown, the universities of North Carolina, Virginia and Michigan, Duke, Columbia and MIT.

The 87 Davis UWC Scholars enrolled at OU represent 43 countries and all 12 of the United World College campuses worldwide.

United World Colleges are two-year residential schools in which a rigorous International Baccalaureate curriculum is employed with all-English instruction. A diverse international student population exists at each of the 12 UWCs worldwide: no more than 25 percent of the students at each school can be from the country where the school is located.
