Student Gratitude

Every day, life-changing opportunities are made possible through the generosity of our donors. As an institution of higher learning, Oakland University is, at its core, a conduit of transformation.  Out of a desire to promote the welfare of others, acts of philanthropy are born. It is these acts that foster opportunities for students to thrive and instill in them grateful hearts and a growing sense of the importance of a culture of philanthropy.
