Today's competitive, rapidly changing world requires depth and agility in the workplace. To prepare students to meet these challenges, UCO and the College of Mathematics and Science provides students with opportunities for life-changing intellectual experiences that take place both inside and beyond the classroom. We call this "Transformative Learning." Transformative Learning is a holistic process that places students at the center of their own active and reflective learning experiences.
