Presidential Statement

According to UCO President Don Betz, our focus is to help students learn and to take care of one another. These characteristics have been cited by students, faculty, and staff as enduring traits. Our transformative learning paradigm, UCO's Central Six, pivots on student success within and beyond discipline knowledge. We embrace this work to shape the lives of those who will shape society. Our values of character, civility, and community have emerged over time by the best of our daily actions.

Employee Comment

I love the culture of UCO. Everyone seems to be going towards the same direction--honoring the student as an individual and a future professional, and working towards the betterment of individuals and community. I truly enjoy the people I work with, and I am extremely grateful for the opportunities UCO provides for me to be developed as a professional or be a part of any number of activities within the UCO community outside of my day-to-day work.
