Get To Know a Broncho

David Ball, Title IX program specialist

What is your background? 

I am a second-generation Korean American. I was born in Japan and raised in Oklahoma. I received a bachelor’s in psychology here at UCO and discovered my passion for adult higher education during my time as an undergraduate.  

Tell me how you first got involved at UCO.  

As a UCO alum and the current Title IX Program Specialist, my student involvement began as a Project SPEAK educator in 2016. Being a Project SPEAK educator sparked my true passion for consent education and outreach. I hope to create meaningful and engaging programs for the UCO community. 

What would you say your strongest beliefs are about your contributions to the university? 

As the child of an immigrant, diversity, equity and inclusion have also been core values for me and reflected through my involvement with UCO. This was a motivating factor that led me to assist in spearheading the creation of UCO’s Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) Faculty and Staff Association (FSA).

What do you do when you are not working? 

When I am not working, you can find me spending time with family and friends.
