The Stillwater Sister Cities Program (SSCP) is supported by the City of Stillwater and a committee of volunteers who are interested in promoting international friendship and goodwill. The program works in cooperation with the State of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University, Stillwater Public Schools, various community organizations and governmental agencies.
