Therapy Assistance Online (TAO)

Sydney Wood, Employee Relations Intern 

Everyone’s life is comprised of different experiences, some good and some bad. We all go through periods in our life where we struggle, and our goal is to provide you with resources that help you adapt and deal effectively with the ever-changing environment that we are in.  

We are excited to provide you with evidenced-based, learner-focused content that aims to increase positive and adaptive behavior. Therapy Assistance Online (TAO) is a suite of online tools for education, interaction, accountability and progress assessment to facilitate effective behavioral health treatment. TAO uses evidence-based tools and educational materials to help you bounce back from life’s stresses and learn new life skills. Some of TAO features are:

Buddy Broncho made his first appearance in UCO's own newspaper The Vista. It was the October 3, 1932, issue where a Broncho appears wearing a UCO football uniform. He has appeared numerous times throughout the years from local Edmond papers in the 60's to state-wide papers in the 80's. The commissioning of the first ever live mascot appears in UCO's 1979 Bronze Book where Buddy Broncho made his first public appearance at Homecoming. Since that time, Buddy has been a fixture at UCO events and in the hearts of UCO students.
