Welcome to the Office of the President

Welcome to Oakland University.

Located on 1,443 rolling acres in Rochester Hills and Auburn Hills, Michigan, Oakland University is a remarkable community of compassionate people, dedicated to empowering our students and our community.

Our priorities are supporting our students’ success; conducting research that benefits our communities; engaging with residents, governments and civic groups throughout the region to improve the quality of culture, health and economic opportunities; and, fostering a campus that is diverse, equitable and inclusive.

Our outstanding faculty are recognized for their commitment to teaching and play an invaluable role as mentors in helping students achieve their goals. And, our graduates play a fundamental part in building the Michigan economy. Indeed, more than 90 percent of OU graduates who are employed are working in the state with the majority contributing to the southeast Michigan economy.

For the third consecutive year, Oakland University is the top destination in the state for community college transfer students. Students are attracted to the range of academic programs, supportive advisors, and a promising career upon graduation. And, our exciting range of student groups contribute to a dynamic campus social and cultural life.

Simply put: An OU degree puts you on the road to success.

Our accomplishments and initiatives reflect our collective will to act with integrity, treat one another with respect, and pursue the truth in our quest for knowledge and more just and humane world.

We hope you’ll find your home here at Oakland University.
