Behind the Stories

Partnership. It’s a word that may evoke different things to different people and there certainly are many different kinds of partnerships. But the one thing that word always implies is cooperation -- two people, two organizations, two groups working together to achieve a goal. This edition of OU Magazine includes a number of variations on that theme, a very appropriate topic for this last issue in our 50th anniversary year.

In these pages you’ll find a partnership between the schools of engineering and nursing that has resulted in a promising new device that may one day soon help Alzheimer’s patients; a history-making partnership between Oakland University and Beaumont Hospitals in the enormous endeavor of creating a new medical school; business partners working together to develop new products, processes and services through OU Inc.; and two political pundits who joined forces to give us an insightful look at this year’s presidential primaries.

These are but a very few of Oakland’s cooperative efforts. We have a long, strong history of partnerships with business, community, educational and other organizations and groups. It gives us all a sense of what the spirit of cooperation can achieve.
