Black Male Summit

Letter from the VP of Student Affairs


The University of Central Oklahoma is honored to have you as our guests as we host the third Annual Black Male Summit Conference.

Once again, I would like to personally welcome you to the Conference. This is an exciting time for the University of Central Oklahoma (UCO) as we strive to empower and motivate young men to follow the dream of obtaining a degree in higher education, while building pipelines between UCO and the metropolitan community.

We know that education for all people improves and supports the lives of the individual, their families, and the community; both now and in the future.  This conference is going to be one of the best experiences you will have in your lives. 

It is my desire that during this conference, you will gain the knowledge that you need to fulfill your dreams and that you will also experience the warm hospitality of many UCO faculty, staff and students that care about your future.

Finally I would like to thank Stevie Johnson, MeShawn Conley, Donovan Cousan and the entire Black Male Summit Committee for putting together such an exciting conference. Their team has worked diligently in the preparation and planning of this important program which is especially designed for young black males.  I am assured that you will be inspired and enlightened by the knowledge and experience that you will gain. 



Myron L. Pope, Ed.D Vice President for Student Affairs, University of Central Oklahoma
