University of Central Oklahoma

The University of Central Oklahoma exists to help students learn by providing transformative education experiences to students so that they may become productive, creative, ethical, and engaged citizens and leaders serving our global community. UCO contributes to the intellectual, cultural, economic and social advancement of the communities and individuals it serves. 


December 24, 1890 – The Territorial Legislature voted to establish the Territorial Normal School. The Territorial Legislature located the new school in Edmond. But first, Oklahoma County had to donate $5,000 in bonds, and Edmond had to donate 40 acres of land within one mile of the town. Ten of those acres had to be set aside for the new school.  


The University of Central Oklahoma is the Leadership University, delivering education based on our shared values of Community, Character and Civility. UCO transforms each student by focusing our resources on the Central Six tenets of transformative learning.


Through professional services and research, we provide leadership and counsel on issues vital to the health of the metropolitan region’s businesses and industry, education institutions, families, and to its cultural quality of life.



The University of Central Oklahoma's Career Development Center is pairing up with the Volunteer and Service Learning Center to host the 2018 Volunteer & Part Time Job Fair taking place during Stampede Week on the UCO Campus. Come meet hundreds of students looking for volunteer or part-time work opportunities.
