Undergraduate Education

The Office of Undergraduate Education is dedicated to enhancing the quality of undergraduate programs, instruction, and advising in ways that lead to student success and retention.

Undergraduate Education provides a single point of focus within the administration for academics and undergraduate education at Oakland University. One of our major missions is ensuring the quality of academic programs in collaboration with Oakland University’s College of Arts and Sciences and professional schools.

Our mission spans the overall undergraduate academic experience. Undergraduate Education promotes quality and excellence in teaching and learning; encourages innovative ideas and enrichment of the undergraduate curriculum; enhances support services and diversity in the curriculum; establishes and interprets policy; and provides oversight for campus-wide and initiatives, including persistence and completion.

We work closely with university faculty, department deans, chairs and academic advising units to help students of all backgrounds graduate on time and begin successful careers. Along with managing the annual production of the University-wide undergraduate catalog, Undergraduate Education oversees:

  • Course and program curriculum development and approvals
  • Campus-wide professional accredited and non-accredited program reviews
  • Curriculum practices and policies and procedures to ensure the University's accreditation processes are compliant with laws, regulations, industry standards and other agency requirements

Our Office also has oversight of OU’s accreditation through the Higher Learning Commission, located at 230 South LaSalle Street, Suite 7-500, Chicago, Illinois, 60604. Phone: 800-621-7440 or 312-263-0456, Fax: 312-263-7462 or at into@hlcommission.org.

We encourage you to contact Undergraduate Education at 248-370-4083 if you have questions not addressed on this site.
