Vision 2020

Welcome to the home page for the University of Central Oklahoma strategic plan, Vision 2020. Adopted by the Cabinet in January 2013, the plan establishes a vision for the next seven years. That plan reflects two critical elements of our mission and vision. First, UCO will be a top national metropolitan university. Second, all student experiences will be rooted in Transformative Learning so our graduates are productive, creative, ethical and engaged citizens and leaders who contribute to the intellectual, cultural, economic and social enhancement of their communities.

The Executive Summary of Vision 2020 can be downloaded by clicking on the icon to the right.

Teams of faculty, staff and administrators are organized into four strategic direction teams and charged with recommending annual operational plans that establish measurable objectives and recommend priorities on budgetary allocations.

The strategic directions are:

Create a Culture of Collaboration and Change

Redefine Ourselves as Oklahoma’s Metropolitan University

Align our Outcomes with our Mission and Vision

Align our Resources to Serve Strategic Stakeholders
