About the Library
Self Study Report
Self Study Report: UCO is in the final stages of our reaccreditation effort with the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). Teams of faculty and staff have worked tirelessly for two years to produce a comprehensive self-study document that demonstrates how our university meets the commission's criteria for accreditation. The Self Study report which contains information about the Max Chambers Library is in Criteria 3.c.1: Support Services for Student Learning - Pages 16-17.
The UCO Educational and General Budget is released at the beginning of each fiscal year in July. More details about the budget process can be found on the UCO website.
