It has been three years since OU launched the transformational, $150 million Aspire. Advance. Achieve. comprehensive campaign. The largest in OU history, this initiative is raising funds for programs all across campus. Above is a look at campaign progress through FY21, all made possible by the university's generous supporters and partners.

"I am incredibly grateful and proud of the campaign support provided by our OU faculty and staff," said Mike Westfall, Vice President for University Advancement.

"Together, we have created a philanthropic vision, shared our story with external constituents, generated considerable external investment, and even provided personal financial support. This has resulted in record levels of philanthropy in support of OU students and programs."

In fact, over the last four years, giving at Oakland University has increased by an average of 27 percent annually.
