About Oakland University

Oakland University is recognized as a student-centered, doctoral research institution with a global perspective. We engage more than 20,500 graduate and undergraduate students in distinctive educational experiences that connect to the unique and diverse opportunities within and beyond our region.
The university was established in 1957 through a generous donation from founders Alfred and Matilda Dodge Wilson. They contributed their historic estate and $2 million to Michigan State University to establish a satellite school, named Michigan State University – Oakland.

Oakland provides a distinct educational experience with flexible class schedules and state-of-the-art facilities, student services, classroom technologies, research labs, internships and research opportunities with corporate partners. Located in the heart of Oakland County's Automation Alley, the university has forged hundreds of partnerships with hospitals, Fortune 500 companies, cities, government agencies and educational institutions.
