Students, faculty and staff will find an improved climate for learning as UCO moves forward with its continuous improvement efforts. UCO will use a self-study process based on the Baldrige principles and criteria (as those principles and criteria are shared with the AQIP process).
The self-study will be conducted using the processes outlined by the Oklahoma Quality Award Foundation. Opportunities for improvement (OFIs) will be prioritized and submitted to appropriate groups, such as CIT and the ExComm, for study action.
NCCI's vision is to function as a catalyst for higher education institutions to work collaboratively across institutions to employ effective methods for advancing academic and administrative excellence.
Continuous Quality Improvement
Continuous Improvement is a way of approaching life at UCO. As a learning organization, we believe there are opportunities for improving all that we do in helping students learn.

Congratulations to UCO for winning at the Commitment level!
"Think of it. We are blessed with technology that would be indescribable to our forefathers. We have the wherewithal, the know-it-all, to feed everybody, clothe everybody, give every human on earth a chance. We know now what we could never have known before--that we now have an option for all humanity to 'make it' successfully on this planet in this lifetime. Whether it is to be Utopia or Oblivion will be a touch-and-go relay race right up to the final moment."
