UCO Leadership Academy


The University of Central Oklahoma Leadership Academy is a progressive program that strives to further develop Oklahoma ninth-grade students to become leaders in their school and communities. The UCOLA accomplishes this by providing first-rate training experiences that will allow each academy participant to develop and enhance their own leadership abilities. It is also a great way for freshmen to be exposed to the University of Central Oklahoma and begin thinking about higher education. The executive board is dedicated to having high-quality leadership development curriculum which focuses on a new theme each year. Through workshops, activities, and discussions, students learn how to make a difference among their peers.  Students also participate in a campus tour and a resource fair highlighting services and programs offered here at UCO.
