Begun in 1997, through the generosity and creativity of Jeanne Hoffman Smith, MSSW, the Center for Interpersonal Studies through Film and Literature brings a distinguished creative person to the campus each year. Poets Robert Pinsky, Jane Hirshfield, Michael Ondaatje, Mark Doty, Lucille Clifton, Naomi Shihab Nye, Li-Young Lee, Billy Collins, Ted Kooser, Joy Harjo, Jimmy Santiago Baca, Charles Simic, Natasha Trethewey, Carolyn Forche, Claudia Emerson, Terrance Hayes and Tracy K. Smith have been featured so far. Inaugural poet reader Richard Blanco will be featured at OCU on April 1, 2015. In addition, the Center develops an annual documentary film series each spring, develops for the university and community a collection of quality videos and DVDs, conducts field trips to OCU for teachers and students from upper elementary through high school to view and discuss distinguished films, submits grants each semester to hold a Humanities book discussion series for the university and Oklahoma City community, collaborates with other campus and metropolitan organizations to support and encourage different groups to work together on creative projects, sponsors international cultural study trips for students from upper elementary grades through high school, and contributes to the support of the OCU Film Institute. The director is a member of the English Department and teaches courses in this department as well as other university courses related to the mission of the Center. The Thatcher Hoffman Smith Endowment Fund and an advisory committee support the development of the Center.
