Dr. Jay Corwin serves as the associate vice president for Advancement at UCO. He works to raise money for the university and loves to focus on increasing scholarships. One of his favorite parts of this job is being able to work with students to reach their goals, especially when they seemed previously unattainable. His role has often entailed speaking on leadership, goal setting, and going the “extra mile.”  He started at UCO in 2006 as the director of Academic Advisement.
