In spirit of the words of Andrew Carnegie, Matilda Dodge Wilson donated her estate in 1957 to provide "ladders upon which the aspiring can rise," establishing what is now Oakland University. The OU campus has 1,443 acres with the historic address of Rochester, Michigan, and includes the National Historic Landmark, Meadow Brook Hall.

Grounded in teaching, service and research, Oakland University offers more than 270 degree and certificate programs to aspiring minds from its large campus spanning two thriving cities (Auburn Hills and Rochester Hills) in southeast Michigan.
