Your Future at UCO UCO MISSION:

UCO 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.

DEAR STUDENT,

UCO is one of the most welcoming and safest places you will find in America. At UCO, we give the international students an opportunity to connect to a buddy program (800 students last year). In this program, you will be paired with an America student for activities and friendship. (Check it out: #ucobronchobuddies) We have another great program which will introduce you to one of our 170 American families who have signed up to “adopt” a UCO international student. They will invite you to share in their activities, birthdays and holidays. Finally, don’t forget to tell your parents that UCO is both welcoming and safe. The FBI ranked your new city as one of the top 10 safest in the United States. You’ll love it here. And we’ll love having you. See you soon, — Dennis Dunham, Ph.D. Executive Director, Global Affairs
