Full text of Chad Richison’s letter to RUSO and RUSO’s response
Full text of RUSO’s statement dated May 19th 2023:
“The Regional University System of Oklahoma (RUSO) conducted a national presidential search,
vetting and interviewing many highly qualified candidates. Todd G. Lamb’s diverse background
in government, law, financial management and industry will help guide UCO into the future as a
leading university in career readiness.
We stand by our decision naming Lamb as the next president of UCO. We recently became
aware of a letter from Chad Richison, CEO of Paycom, expressing his opinion about this
decision. While we disagree with his opinion, we will defend his right to say it. Lamb’s track
record of federal service directly related to our premiere W. Roger Webb Forensic Science
Institute, his deep understanding of the legislative process, and his widespread connections
across Oklahoma will be crucial in propelling the university towards a bright future.
