Stephanie Edwards, Manager of Web Strategy and IT Communications

Requesting access to tech systems can be confusing and complicated. Specific and sometimes unique access has to be requested for all new faculty and staff as well as any that may change roles or pick up new responsibilities.

As part of the Office of Information Technology’s (OIT) continued efforts to increase efficiency and empower the campus community, OIT has partnered with the Banner Leadership Team, made up of key functional stakeholders who provide support and planning for use of Banner, and other campus service owners to improve the Employee Security Access Form (ESAF).

Starting in April, and over the next several months, you will see ongoing improvements to the ESAF. These include updates to the existing PDF form to better align with current UCO systems access through the transition to a completely digital process. The best resource for following along with these exciting process improvements is the Employee Security Access Form knowledge base article.

For more information, or if you have questions, contact the UCO Service Desk by email at or by phone to 405-974-2255.

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.
