Letter from OU President Gary Russi:
Within this special Donor Honor Roll section, you will learn about the countless acts of giving we experienced last year on behalf of Oakland University students and faculty. Your generous and visionary contributions are establishing Oakland as a university of distinction.
I take pride in the knowledge that our shared vision is being realized day in and day out through heightened opportunities for scholarship and learning, in greater service to the communities who look to us for leadership, in more modern classrooms and laboratories, and through the teaching and research resources we are able to provide for faculty.
As we launch the university’s first comprehensive campaign, we look to you, our loyal donors and friends, for your continuing friendship and critical financial support. Oakland holds an important teaching, service and research mission that impacts our tri-county area and beyond. Through the campaign, we aim to achieve even greater success in fulfilling our mission and preparing leaders for successful careers and meaningful lives.
Please accept my most heartfelt thanks and deepest appreciation for your friendship and support.
Gary D. Russi
President of Oakland University
