Letter from OU President Gary Russi:
As I reflect on this Donor Honor Roll, recognizing donors and their gifts to the university in 2005, I am encouraged and optimistic about a future Oakland. Through the steadfast support of your gifts in the year when Oakland launched its first-ever comprehensive campaign, we have made good progress and are getting closer to our campaign goal of $110 million by 2010.
You will see from the stories in the following pages that we are touching people’s lives on many fronts. From the establishment of several new student scholarships to academic program enhancements, I am so impressed by the caring and commitment of our donors. Talk to any one of our students who have benefited from donor support and you will hear heartfelt gratitude for the difference even a small gift makes in pursuing an Oakland education.
I am deeply grateful for your commitment to strengthening this institution and the ongoing success of our campaign “Innovation and Opportunity – The Campaign for Oakland University.”
Gary D. Russi
President of Oakland University
