National search begins for new UCO president
The Regional University System of Oklahoma is conducting a national search for the 21st president of the University of Central Oklahoma. UCO President Don Betz will retire June 30.
“President Betz has done an outstanding job growing the engagement of UCO’s students, faculty alumni and donors,” said Mark Stansberry, chairman of the Board of Regents.
The regents have appointed a presidential search advisory committee and will advertise the position nationally in higher education trade publications, traditional media and online platforms. The committee consists of four RUSO regents; members of the UCO faculty, administration and student body; UCO alumni and community members.
UCO, founded in 1890 as the Territorial Normal Schoo, has nearly 16,000 students in 121 undergraduate areas of study and 74 graduate majors.
