The University of Oklahoma Schusterman Learning Center was completed in 2008 and was made possible by the State Higher Education Bond Issue and a generous gift from the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation. Additional major gifts were made by Founders of Doctors' Hospital, Inc. and the Diane and Lindsay Perkins family.

The Schusterman Learning Center is a two story structure which includes 47,000 square feet of space. It is the first building on the OU-Tulsa campus solely dedicated to classroom and meeting space. The conceptual design of the Schusterman Learning Center is derived from the advanced instructional methods used in academic programming at OU-Tulsa. These advanced methods include team learning, active learning and extensive use of technology to implement just in-time learning.
