The University of Central Oklahoma has played a vital role in the creation and delivery of education in the State of Oklahoma for over 100 years. UCO recognizes the importance of developing collaborative relationships at the local, state and national level to ensure the continuation of this success. To serve the needs of students and the greater Oklahoma City metro UCO emphasizes partnerships with government, business and community leaders.
UCO has created several initiatives and practices that promote conversations and the exchange of ideas between state leaders and UCO administration and faculty. These initiatives and practices enable UCO to continuously scan and discover potential areas for improvement and service.
