Letter from OU President Gary Russi:
As most of you know, this year marks a special milestone for Oakland University. We are celebrating our 50th anniversary, and as I look back on the 2006 donor honor roll, I am both heartened and excited for our next
50 years. On these pages we recognize old friends and welcome new friends – all with a similar vision and commitment to the founding spirit of this university: a desire to make an exceptional education possible for generations of students to come.
The stories here speak volumes about your generosity and steadfast confidence in this university and our community. At the midpoint of our comprehensive campaign, we are making significant progress toward our goal of reaching $110 million by 2010. Your support means we will be able to realize our plans for increased scholarship awards, new and exciting research endeavors, cutting-edge programming, state-of-the-art facilities, study-abroad opportunities and much more. In short, we are positioned to achieve the next milestone in Oakland’s history: becoming a university of distinction.
Please accept my heartfelt thanks and admiration for your friendship and your dedication to the future of Oakland University.
Gary D. Russi
President of Oakland University
