COPY-Foreign faculty flock to OSU

Associated Press - July 6, 2007 2:15 PM ET

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A recent study shows Oklahoma State University is among the top employers for foreigners who use visas to work and live in the United States.

OSU ranks in the middle of a top-200 list from the financial publication BusinessWeek that ranks employers nationwide for the number of employees here on H-One-B visas. The H-One-B is a temporary work visa for highly skilled professionals.

About ten percent of Oklahoma State's 2,100 faculty members are in the United States from other countries on H-One-B visas.

The school is the only entity listed that is clearly Oklahoma-based. It joins some 20 other schools, including Yale, Columbia and Harvard universities, near the top 100.

The University of Oklahoma has roughly 125 faculty and staff members with the visas, according to the school's Human Resources Department.
